Crews were working to remove three remaining barges that got loose on the Ohio River, including one carrying methanol. A total of 10 barges got loose on the river near Louisville, the Kentucky Energy and Environment Cabinet said. Most were recovered, but the U.S Army Corp of Engineers said three were pinned against the McAlpine Locks and Dam and the locks are closed to traffic until the barges are stabilized. One of those barges was carrying 1,400 tons of methanol and was partially submerged, Kentucky officials said. LiveNOW's Andrew Craft spoke with Christie Battista from WDRB, the Fox affiliate in Louisville, Kentucky about the barges and emergency crews efforts to remove them.
