Shrimping Vessels Seek Refuge from Ingrid in Brownsville

Posted: Updated:
CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) -

Some shrimping vessels from Mexico found themselves in harms way as Tropical Storm Ingrid made her presence known in the Gulf of Mexico Monday.

U.S. Coast Guard footage shows some of the boats battling the storm as the Coast Guard helped them navigate the choppy waters and head to the Port of Brownsville, where they sought refuge.

According to the Coast Guard, there are 179 boats at the port waiting for Ingrid to blow over. The Coast Guard is hoping to help get the ships on their way sometime Tuesday or Wednesday.
