Port of Seattle deals with toppled ship containers

By David Rosen

The Port of Seattle workers have a long night ahead of them after learning about a powerful storm at sea damaged some of the shipping containers on board. The ship is currently docked at Terminal 18.

According to Coast Guard officials, the container ship named Arnold Maersk came into port Friday from Busan, Korea. The ship departed Korea on November 12, 2013 and encountered severe weather on the seas.

The crew reported to Coast Guard officials that two days ago 53 containers were damaged and 18 containers were lost overboard in international waters. The ship itself was not damaged.
