The Panama-flagged oil tanker Kamome Victoria was allowed to continue its journey after it ran aground in the Ambrose Channel in the afternoon hours of August 25.

The tanker, which was carrying 373,000 gallons of fuel at the time, ran into trouble while it was transiting outbound some five miles south of the Verrazano Narrows Bridge.

The ship was refloated with the tide later that evening and transited to Gravesend Bay near Brooklyn to anchor for the night.

On Saturday, divers inspected the hull, propulsion, and rudder for any damage. The survey showed that there was no pollution or significant damage to the oil tanker following the incident.

Once the inspection process received US Coast Guard approval, the vessel was allowed to depart New York and continue its transit out from Gravesend Bay, the USCG said.

The cause of the incident is under investigation.
