STUYVESANT - The Coast Guard gave NewsChannel 13 an update today on the oil tanker that is stranded on the Hudson River near Stuyvesant.

They say there are still no signs of a spill.

And divers are conducting a thorough inspection of the damaged hull.

The tanker left the port of Albany Thursday morning and was on its way to Canada with millions of gallons of crude oil when it ran aground.

Crews plan to move the oil on to barges.
