Gusty winds partially break USS Ingraham from dock
EVERETT, Wash. -- Gusty winds form an autumn storm partially broke a Navy frigate from its mooring at the Everett Naval Station early Tuesday morning.

Some of the tether lines separated from the USS Ingraham around 5 a.m., said base spokesperson Kristin Ching. The ship never broke totally free, but for a while, aerial video showed the ship turned about 90 degrees to the dock.

Emergency crews responded and were able to get the ship under control, and no one was hurt. Ching says there wasn't any damage to the ship either.

Crews are working to get additional metal lines on the ship to further secure it, and in the meantime a tugboat is on scene to maintain control of the ship.

Ching said winds gusted to 49 mph at the base during the height of the storm.
