USCG Healy Escorting Russian Tanker To Nome Alaska

The USCG to the rescue again!  The USCG cutter Healy which is an ice breaker is escorting the Russian Tanker Renda to Nome. The Renda is carrying 1.3 million gallons of fuel. They are cutting through what sounds like some serious ice.

I hope they get there soon for the sake of the people in Nome.

I saw a clip the other day for the new series coming out on Discovery called Bering Sea Gold. Starts Jan 27th. The clip was filmed in Nome. It looks like part if not all of this series is being filmed there. Yes I'm becoming a Gold Rush addict. LOL Great show!
