Norfolk, Va. – Last night’s storm dragged a sailboat from its anchor near the 13th Street boat ramp in Norfolk and into a trestle on the Hampton Roads Bridge Tunnel, according to the Coast Guard.

The boat’s mast has fallen and is not a threat to anyone. It is wedged under the bridge near Willoughby Spit and 13th View Street.

The Coast Guard is attempting to contact the owner.
