The Coast Guard responded Sunday night to a report of a vessel that had lost power off the coast of Morro Bay, Calif. A 47-foot Motor Life Boat from Coast Guard Station Morro Bay was launched to the scene and safely towed the vessel back to Morro Bay Harbor.

The Coast Guard responded to a report early Monday that a 30-foot recreational vessel had run aground near Santa Barbara, Calif. with four people on board.
