    BALTIMORE, Md. ( DC News Now ) — Unified Command officials announced Saturday that crews were refloating the container ship and moving it from the Francis Scott Key Bridge collapse site in Baltimore.

    The refloat sequence started midday on Sunday. During that time, some of the anchors and mooring lines attached to the M/V Dali were released.

    Dive teams also inspected the area around the ship to confirm all obstacles are out of its path.

    The Dali began moving to a local marine terminal at around 5:24 a.m. Monday during the high tide.

    About five tugboats escorted the Dali 2.5 miles to the terminal, moving at a pace of about 1 mph.

    The Unified Command said the entire refloat and transit sequence is expected to take about 21 hours or longer.
