The Coast Guard announced Friday it would begin a sweeping clean-up of its Great Lakes Region’s waters after the death of a U.P. Coast guard captain.
The Coast guard, which operates in all 50 states, has about 3,000 employees and has been in crisis since the summer of 2017.
Since then, more than 4,000 people have died in the Great Lake region and the death toll has jumped from 1,922 in 2016 to 1,857 in 2017.
The death of Captain William M. Jones on Friday was among the most devastating in the Coast Guard history.
Jones, 66, had been a Coast guard career official for more than 30 years.
He was a member of the Coast guard’s crew in the Gulf of Mexico and the Atlantic Ocean.
Jones was also a member and commander of the United States Coast Guard Cutter Darlene.
The cause of death was under investigation, the Coastguard said.
Jones’ death marks the latest tragedy in the region in the wake of the Great Recession.
On Thursday, the U,P.
National Park Service released a statement saying it was “deeply saddened” by the loss of Jones.
The National Park service said it was also offering a $10,000 reward for information leading to his arrest.
It said that in addition to Jones, the park service has two other people who were in contact with Jones: his son, a former U.K. Marine, and his daughter, who was living in the United Kingdom when he died.
The Coast Guard was notifying anyone who may have been in contact during Jones’ life.
In addition to the Great Bay, the coast guard has three smaller islands in the Atlantic, the westernmost of which is called the Darlena.
Those islands, including the U-shaped reef, are home to dolphins and whales.
This week, the Great Basin, the region’s largest estuary, was also closed to the public after the Coast Guards cutter Darlen lost power.
At the end of 2017, more people were dead in the U.,P.
than anywhere else on the planet, according to the U ,P.
Department of Health and Human Services.
