- The U.S. Coast Guard has called off the search for the nine missing passengers from the Sunday afternoon crash of a Northwest Seaplanes DHC‑3 Turbine Otter that was bound for Renton after leaving Friday Harbor. The body of a tenth passenger was recovered on Sunday. The aircraft crashed in Mutiny Bay off the west side of Whidbey Island. At the time, weather conditions near Mutiny Bay were scattered clouds, with a visibility of 10 miles, according to the National Weather Service.
- According to the Washington State Department of Ecology, dive crews have finished cutting away free-floating netting from the sunken fishing vessel Aleutian Isle. They have also secured all remaining entanglement hazards and have started to attach the rigging that will be used to lift the vessel from a depth of more than 200 feet off the west side of San Juan Island.
