Update #4: Unified Command authorizes Kulluk to drop anchor to slow drift

As a precautionary measure Unified Command authorized crew members of the Kulluk to drop its anchor off the coast of Kodiak.  This tactic is used to slow the drift of the Kulluk and minimize potential impact to personnel and the environment.

The Aiviq and Guardsman, as an additional precautionary measure, were still connected to the Kulluk during the time of the anchor deployment.

Teams are currently evaluating the trajectory of the Kulluk drift and impact of the anchor deployment.
