Wind partly breaks Navy frigate from dock at Everett base

The Associated Press

Winds gusting to 49 mph early Tuesday partially broke the frigate USS Ingraham away from its mooring at Naval Station Everett.

The ship swung about 90 degrees to the dock, but base spokeswoman Kristin Ching told KOMO it did not break free and there was no damage.

The 450-foot ship was secured with the help of a tugboat.
