WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) – The abandoned quarantine structure in the waters surrounding Southport will not only remain in the water, but will also remain unmarked and unlit.
The widower, Ed Pierce, made several attempts to draw public attention to the dangerous structure, gaining some attention. Representative Mike McIntyre wrote a letter to the Coast Guard asking that changes be made to the structure but those requests went unheard.
The Coast Guard says it is beyond their jurisdiction to remove the structure. Representative McIntyre says he is still trying to find another solution make the waters safer around Southport.
