Runaway barges drift about 11 miles in Snohomish County

Two runaway barges that had drifted about 11 miles in the water off Snohomish County before beaching themselves on a breakwater were towed away by tugboat Thursday morning.

The barges, which were tied together and about 60-by-300 feet combined, had been moored off of Jetty Island in Everett.

They became unhitched and drifted in the channel between Hat and Camano islands before becoming beached on the breakwater at Mission Beach, according to the Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office, which said the first call about the barges came in at around 9 a.m.

High winds and waves may have contributed to the barges getting loose, the sheriff’s office said.

The barges were towed to safety by a tug from Foss Maritime.
