Coast Guard Cutters Remain Busy Along Icy Hudson River

Jan 12, 2018
KINGSTON, N.Y. — Coast Guard crews have been busy freeing up tugs stuck in the icy Hudson River.

The Coast Guard recently used an ice-breaking vessel to free a tug that had been stuck in the ice near Kingston. The ice-breaking tug freed another vessel near Saugerties.

Temperatures have dropped below zero along the river recently, complicating commercial shipping between New York City and Albany.

The Coast Guard has ice-breaking tugs positioned along the river to help vessels where the river ice is thick.
