HONOLULU, Hawaii (HawaiiNewsNow) - The U.S. Coast Guard said an abandoned vessel that was being towed by the state sank off Ala Wai Harbor Saturday afternoon.

Officials said, fuel had already been pumped from the vessel’s tank, so it did not pose a major environmental threat.

The Coast Guard said it is monitoring the situation just in case something changes.
