Alaska (CNN) - The oil drilling rig that ran aground off Alaska's Southern coast is being towed away.
Crews began the recovery operation this Monday morning. Company officials with Shell says there's no sign that any oil leaked. The rig was being towed back to its home in Seattle last week when a severe storm hit, forcing crews to cut it loose.
