Weather coming

Tanker barges and tugs seem to be accumulating in the North River anchorages ahead of weather coming in Friday night. By sundown, Genesis Vigilant, Adeline Marie, Patrice McCallister, and Dean Reinauer were all anchored south of the Bridge, and Mount St Elias and Kimberly Poling were to the north. Gale warnings and coastal flood warnings were in effect for Friday evening after a pleasantly warm day, with gusts up to 40 knots expected.

Mount St Elias was anchored with a light barge off Dyckman Street, with Palisades Park and the road up the cliff from the Englewood Marina in the background.
Kimberly Poling was anchored off Alpine, with the massive Alpine Tower, which dates back to 1937, looming above
Marilyn George, a Poling-Cutler tug new to the River this year, has become a frequent flyer. She left anchorage off Yonkers Friday afternoon and was heading for the KvK
