Ouch! That is Bad!

The 140 foot Coast Guard Icebreaker Morro Bay has collided with the Block Island ferry in dense fog.
No injuries are reported, and there is no word who, if anyone, was at fault.

(The news is calling the cutter a buoy tender, but, while they do sometimes do buoy work,  the 140's are icebreaking tugs.)

UPDATE! Elsewhere the USCG was saving people as usual.
