MOREHEAD CITY (AP) ó An underwater expedition this summer is surveying sunken German submarines off the North Carolina coast as part of a government project to document shipwrecks.
Divers from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and other agencies have explored one submarine off Morehead City already. The expedition now is focused on two other U-boats off Oregon Inlet.
David Alberg is leader of the expedition and says the research will be used to help preserve the sites.
Officials say the expedition will continue next summer with exploration of sunken Allied ships.
