Captain Jack Levine, Bar Pilot Station Captain, just called to report that the MV Zagora is aground at light 19, approximately mm10 BHP due to a loss of steering. It was drafting 21’.
The vessel is NOT blocking deep draft vessel traffic at this time. Should this situation elevate to a point where it effects navigation, MRMA will report immediately.
