The U.S. Coast Guard is coordinating salvage efforts for an offshore support vessel that has run aground off the west Cameron Jetties in Louisiana on Wednesday.

The 120-foot Miss Lynda ran aground early in the morning. There were no injuries to the four passengers and three crew aboard the ship, and no pollution was reported. The salvage company is still being determined.

The four passengers were transited off of the ship by the Sally D, a utility ship. The three crew members remain on the Miss Lynda.

The ship is carrying construction cargo and had 4,300 gallons of fuel and 100 gallons of oil products aboard. Damage to the ship was reported five feet above the waterline, and the ship has not taken on any water.

There has been no impact to traffic in the Calcasieu Ship Channel.
