Flooding Sends Barges Down Ohio River, Against Emsworth Locks & Dam

Loose Barges Running Amok On The Ohio River Inc. All rights reserved. This material may not be published broadcast rewritten or redistributed

Coast Guard Marine Safety Unit Pittsburgh reported 27 barges, some loaded with coal, broke loose from the Jack's Run fleeting area near mile marker 4, with four barges passing through the gates at Emsworth - the first lock and dam on the OH downstream of the city - and possibly sinking farther downstream.

Numerous barges are up against the main channel dam and could block the dam gates, which would cause water to back up into Pittsburgh.

It's not unusual to see barges along the Ohio River, but the barges we saw Saturday do not belong here. Officials with the U.S. Coast Guard, which was leading efforts to retrieve the barges, could not be reached for further comment. The three other barges that went over the dam were still floating down the Ohio River. The Coast Guard had crews out in the water working to corral those barges Saturday morning. There are no reports of significant damage to Emsworth Lock & Dam and no environmental concerns from pollution.
