|83k||Caleta Cifuncho Bay, Chile, : On 12 September 2000, USS La Moure County (LST-1194) was preparing for an amphibious landing, part of the annual UNITAS exercise, and was operating with the Chilean LST Valdivia (ex-USS San Bernardino [LST 1189], a sister ship transferred to Chile several years ago). In the darkness and fog, La Moure County drove ashore on the coast of Chile and was pulled off the rocks by a Chilean Naval ocean tug that was accompanying the LSTs. La Moure County anchored in Cifuncho Bay to evaluate the damage. Unofficial damage reports indicated massive damage to the hull and destruction of her propulsion systems.

|43k||Caleta Cifuncho Bay, Chile. Following the grounding on the rocky coast of Chile, 12 September 2000, USS La Moure County (LST-1194) under went emergency repairs in Cifuncho Bay, to make her seaworthy for the 700 mile tow to Talcahuano, Chile. After getting underway October 28th, she arrived at Talcahuano on the 31st, under tow by the Chilean icebreaker Oscar Viel Toro. This was her final port, as repairs to her severely damaged hull and machinery were judged to be uneconomical. She is seen here at anchor in Cifuncho Bay, where she lay from September 12th to October 28th.
