LST 393 damaged in freak windstorm
USS LST 393 sustained thousands of dollars of damage during a Dec. 28 storm that brought 65 mph winds from the northeast. That unusual high-wind direction pushed the ship away from its dock, snapping lines and dragging the anchor. The warship is back and secure but all plumbing, walkways and ladders will need to be replaced before the museum reopens in May.
