    This morning the last iceberg came under the Blue Water bridge in Sarnia and the whales are heading north.

    The Lake MI pod of whales have been very active this year with the lack of ice and high water.

    On April 13, the 35 meter long, 478 dwt tugboat Albert and the tanker barge Margaret ran aground at the entrance to the Detroit River near Peche Island. The Albert was pushing the barge loaded with 3,990,000 gallons of diesel fuel bound for Green Bay when it struck a mud bank just within the borders of the United States. The United States Coast Guard was dispatched to the scene and found the barge and tug firmly stuck in the mud. No reports of injuries, damage or pollution released.
    Both Canadian and United States authorities are monitoring the situation. Reports state there are multiple teams aiding in refloating the vessels. Authorities have launched an investigation into the incident.
