There were two maritime distress calls in the southern California Coast Guard District yesterday. Does anyone know how I can get details on those distress calls? Yesterday afternoon I took the brother-in-law and his wife out for a harbor cruise in Newport Harbor. About 4 p.m. the Coast Guard issued a small craft advisory for high seas and heavy winds. We decided to slip out of the mouth of the harbor and take a look. Pretty bad so we quickly scooted back in. About 45 minutes later a distress call came in for a sinking. I looked to the GPS coordinates but couldn't determine how far away they were. About an hour and a half later a second distress call came in for a collision, but then again the GPS coordinates seemed pretty far away. Neither incident must have been very close, as the OC sheriff boats were just hanging out in the harbor and didn't go anywhere. Same with the Coast Guard Cutter there in Newport. Tied up and shipshape.
