4 Rescued After Boat Runs Aground in Chincoteague

Posted:

CHINCOTEAGUE, Va. (WBOC/AP)- Four people have been rescued after their boat ran aground in Chincoteague.
    
The Coast Guard says the 24-foot pontoon boat ran aground near Chincoteague Point at around 8 p.m. Tuesday. A crew from the Coast Guard's Station Chincoteague brought the boaters aboard a 24-foot special purpose shallow water boat and took them to Curtis Merritt Marina in Chincoteague.
    
No injuries were reported. 
    
The Coast Guard says that the crew decided to transport the boaters instead of towing the boat because of 25-knot winds and rainy weather.

    Proposed Roundabout for Wicomico County Intersection

    There is a intersection in Salisbury off Route 50 that has several roads leading into it and 12 traffic lights regulating it. 

    Mount Hermon Road, Long Avenue, Truitt Street, East Williams Street, and Main Street all intersect at one central location. 

    People in the community have mixed feelings about the intersection. Some say it should be left alone because it regulates traffic just fine while others say it is a nuisance.
