Four-Day Tow of WWII Battleship USS Iowa Postponed

The final voyage of the USS Iowa scheduled for May 20 from the Port of Richmond has been delayed by a weather system affecting the West Coast.

Organizers will reschedule the tow to the Port of Los Angeles and all related activities following the passage of the weather system later this week.

The four-day tow of the World War II battleship by Crowley Maritime Corporation, across San Francisco Bay and then down the coast to the Port of Los Angeles, was scheduled to begin on May 20 at noon PDT. A media briefing set for 10:30 a.m. PDT on the same day at the ship was canceled as well.
