A tugboat and a barge that ran aground off the coast of southern New Jersey this weekend have been refloated.
The Coast Guard said Sunday that the 77-foot Miss Katie tugboat and the 135-foot barge it was towing were refloated Sunday near Absecon Inlet.
Officials say the tugboat lost power Saturday and ran aground in the Atlantic Ocean north of the Absecon Inlet. The 135-foot barge drifted and ran aground on the inlet's south side.
No injuries or pollution issues were reported in the incident.
