Update 10:00 am – Early this morning littoral combat ship USS Freedom (LCS 1) was making preparations to get underway after a prolonged maintenance period pier side.  After the ship’s diesel engines were started, black smoke could be seen emitting from the ship.   The black smoke was a result of carbon build-up being burned off after sitting idle for nearly 9 months.
