Work continues to remove netting that is a safety hazard to divers and wildlife, and could hamper the lifting operations.

An incident-specific web page has been created by the Washington Department of Ecology. Additional photos of the response can be found on Flickr. Developing updates will also be posted periodically on the U.S. Coast Guard Pacific Northwest social media accounts listed below.
