After nearly two months at sea, an important part of the port city is coming home today. The US Coast Guard cutter Diligence left in early August to help patrol the windward pass to stop illegal immigration. The crew stopped dozens of Haitian migrants from coming into the US. During their time at sea the Diligence crew encountered hurricanes Fay, Gustav, Hanna and Ike. The crew also went to the Bahamas to help in recovery efforts from Hurricane Ike. The Diligence will dock around noon today.
