The Coast Guard closed the port of Nawiliwili, Kauai, Sunday due to a possible obstruction in the water.

On Friday evening, Tug Moana Holo and its deck barge Maka Ala ran aground near the entrance to Nawiliwili Harbor. During dive operations of the barge Maka Ala Sunday, a 30 by 15 foot skeg was discovered missing.

The port is closed to all traffic until the skeg is located.
