(Cincinnati, Oh.) – Eight barges are secure on the Kentucky side of the Ohio River after breaking from their moorings. 


It happened Sunday afternoon about 2:00 along River Road between North Bend and Taylorsport roads. 


The U.S. Coast Guard and Cincinnati fire crews were able to re-secure the barges after several hours of work. 


The Coast Guard was already on the river conducting training nearby and responded quickly.


No injuries were reported.
