Lakers damaged in Duluth-Superior harbor collision
Two lakers were damaged early Saturday morning when one hit the other in the Duluth-Superior Harbor, according to Adele Yorde, public relations manager for the Duluth Seaway Port Authority. The Indiana Harbor was docked and loading coal at Midwest Energy Resources Co. and the Cason J. Callaway was loaded with iron ore and leaving the CN dock when they hit around 2 a.m., Yorde said. The Callaway was repaired at the Port Terminal and able to leave on Sunday. The Indiana Harbor is still docked in Superior where it is being repaired.
|The Indiana Harbor is currently undergoing repairs at the Lakehead Pipeline Dock in Superior and is scheduled to move over to the Midwest Energy Resources coal dock to load coal on Friday, September 23rd. If that happens, she would be departing Friday evening; in other words; she will continue where she left off when she was hit by the Callaway while at the Midwest Energy dock last weekend.
Cason J. Callaway left Duluth for Gary to discharge iron ore pellets at 2342 Sunday night, September 18. She is expected to then go to Sturgeon Bay for repairs.
