Posted by on Saturday, April 8, 2017
MV Kure Harbour has required assistance from tug boats and pilot boats this morning after strong wind forced the ship aground in Placentia Bay.

Also on scene are the Canadian Coast Guard and an Environmental Response team.

The MV Kure Harbour was lifting anchor when strong winds pushed the ship aground.

No pollution has been reported and the ship is stable, remains operational and all crew are safe.

Tugboats will try to free it tonight during high tide.
