The crew of the USS Little Rock LCS-9, which was commissioned at Canalside in Buffalo on Dec. 16, expected to be well on their way to their home base in Mayport, Fla., at this point.
Instead, their departure from Buffalo was delayed for three days by the weather. Now the newest ship in the Navy has been moored at a dock in Montreal for more than a week.
The vessel’s Facebook page, showing photos of ice-covered water, noted on Dec. 27 that the Little Rock had made it through the Welland Canal and St. Lawrence Seaway and had arrived in Montreal.
Plans to proceed to Halifax apparently are on hold until conditions improve.
