The Coast Guard and the Navy are removing two buoys that washed up at Chic’s Beach and Oceanview last week during stormy weather.

Navy assets from Joint Expeditionary Base Little Creek will tow the buoys off the beach and back into the Chesapeake Bay, where a crew aboard the Coast Guard Cutter Frank Drew will hoist them aboard, assess them for damage and then return the buoys to their assigned navigational positions.
