Supply ship Endeavour still stuck

Officials continue to keep watch over a 59 foot vessel that ran aground Monday in the St. Lucie Inlet.

The supply ship, named Endeavour, hit a sand bar Monday afternoon.

Several barrels of diesel fuel, which were on the vessel, got loose and drifted into the water.

An unknown amount of fuel leaked

Authorities are now using booms to soak up the oil

Yesterday, lift bags were put underneath the ship to get it to float.

Officials say it could be days before it is removed.
