Ship runs aground and splits in two in Japan

A Panamanian-registered ship ran aground in a northern Japan harbor, then break up in two and was leaking oil, however there have been no accidents among the many 21 crew and the oil leak was being managed with no indicators it had reached shore, the Japan Coast Guard stated.

The 39,910-ton vessel, the “Crimson Polaris,” was carrying wooden chips when it ran aground on Wednesday morning in Hachinohe harbor.

It managed to free itself, however as a consequence of poor climate was unable to maneuver far and ended up anchoring about four kilometers (2.four miles) out from the port.

The vessel, which was on the finish of a voyage from Thailand, break up in two early on Thursday, the Coast Guard stated.

An oil slick 5.1 kilometers lengthy by about 1 kilometer huge was seen later within the day, however containment measures have been being taken by patrol boats.

The vessel’s two components haven’t moved and are being intently monitored by patrol boats, and by late afternoon there had been no obvious main change in its state of affairs, a Coast Guard spokesman stated.
