High winds had caused a line of barges to stop on the Ohio River near Belpre.

The group was heading to Kentucky when the wind picked up and forced it to stop as a precaution.

It was stranded near the Parkersburg-Belpre bridge.

The tow vessel was moving empty barges that were catching the wind and rocking.

The tow captain says he waited for the gusts to settle before getting back on his way.
