New leak discovered on Battleship Texas

LA PORTE, Texas - More trouble has been reported for a Texas landmark: the Battleship Texas has a new leak.

The news comes three months after the last issue with the vintage vessel.

The Texas Parks and Wildlife Department, which oversees the Battleship Texas, said the leak has developed about eight feet from the centerline of the ship.

The battleship staff and contractor are working around the clock to work on solutions. Divers are being sent down to pinpoint the exact source of the leak.

Despite the leak, the ship remains open to the public for tours.
