KITTERY, Maine — The USS Miami attack submarine has arrived at the Portsmouth Naval Shipyard for maintenance and upgrade work.

The 360-foot Los Angeles-class submarine and its crew of 13 arrived Thursday at the shipyard in Kittery, where it will remain for about 20 months.

The submarine recently completed a five-month deployment in Europe, with port calls in Norway, Scotland, England and Spain.

The Miami was commissioned in 1990 and is home-ported in New London, Conn.
