Maersk Ship Loses Boxes in Biscay Gale
Storm knocks 26 containers overboard en route from Asia to UK
A Maersk container ship was waiting in the French Port of Le Havre Friday to have its cargo secured after it lost 26 containers overboard on Tuesday in a powerful storm in the Bay of Biscay.
The maritime prefecture in Cherbourg said the Maersk Sembawang lost the containers overboard from the last row of boxes stacked at its stern and suffered damage to 49 more when it ran into the storm.
