Atlantic Huron arrives Duluth harbor

There was not much movement in the harbor yesterday. The Walter J. McCarthy Jr. approached the Duluth piers and decided to drop anchor in the outer anchorage and wait for the storm, particularly the wind from the North, to pass. At 8:10 Sunday morning, the Mesabi Miner went out in the Lake after loading coal at Midwest Energy Resources in Superior, also the destination of the McCarthy. The Miner decided to drop anchor also. Both were there on Sunday evening. Presumably, the McCarthy came in last night and has been loading coal. It is about a 9 hour process. Two more boats will be here today to load coal; the Canadian flagged Algolake and Canadian Enterprise. The Atlantic Huron is expected here today to load taconite. Above, it is arriving on January 1st, 2007.
