We’ve been training for the last three days, to get everybody up to speed and we’re doing everything we can to consider the environment, and the people we’re dealing with the and different vessels we’re dealing with," said Tinelli.Tinelli says recent rains have made the Ohio River more hazardous to navigate.High waters mean a faster current, and more debris in the water.
