Montreal, PQ (WBEN) The Little Rock LCS9 remains in Montreal and leaders say it will be there until weather conditions improve. 

"Significant weather conditions prevented the ship from departing Montreal earlier this month and icy conditions continue to intensify. The temperatures in Montreal and throughout the transit area have been colder than normal, and included near-record low temperatures, which created significant and historical conditions in the late December, early January timeframe," says Lt. Cmdr. Courtney Hillson. 

While in port, Hillson says the crew of Little Rock will continue to focus on training, readiness and certifications.

Little Rock, which was commissioned in Buffalo Dec. 16, will continue her transit to Mayport, Florida, when weather and seaway conditions permit.
