Operations are on hold at the City Dock after high winds damaged the only working crane for loading cargo.
Ports director Peggy McLaughlin says the crane was being moved Friday morning to accommodate an incoming Horizon Lines container ship. A gust of wind caught the machinery and slammed the crane against its emergency stops.
"It hit it pretty good and there’s some obvious repair work that needs to be done to that end of the crane where the stops were," McLaughlin says. "There was a little bit of visible damage on the crane."
