Barge dumps cars in Commencement Bay


A barge laden with scrap car hulks sits level in the water, anchored near the northern shore of Commencement Bay in Tacoma, Monday. On Sunday it was listing and lost some of the cars into the waters of Puget Sound. According to a Department of Ecology official, water has been pumped out of the barge. An oil boom remains, but is no longer circling the barge.
