Discoverer Enterprises has resumed containment operations as of 2:15 p.m. today following a short outage caused by a lightning strike at 9:30 a.m.

The U.S. Coast Guard gave authorization for the operation to resume at 1:40 p.m. after the ship’s crew completed safety and operation assurance inspections.

The shut-down of the system was a precautionary move to protect the healthy and safety of the crew. There were no injuries, and all safety systems operated as they were supposed to.
