A barge in danger of sinking is forcing dozens of boats to be taken out of the Ohio River.
The Huntington Yacht club Marina barge at Harris Riverfront Park has a leak, and could sink if it's not removed.
So everyone who docks their boats at the marina is being asked to move their boats by the end of the day Sunday.
It's not clear what consequences owners could face if they don't remove their watercraft.
That's an issue that could be taken up with the city of Huntington or the U.S. Coast Guard.
