Two vessels encountered bad weather near Amini Island while sailing Lakshadweep Sea. The 160 ton Al Akther had just unloaded a cargo of produce on Amini Island when it departed to pick up cargo from another island. The Al Akther had six crewmen on board when it was reported missing. No trace of the vessel has been found while rescue boats look for survivors. Another vessel, the Al Faisal, was also sailing in the area near the Al Akther. The Al Faisal got caught in the same rough seas and was able to keep the vessel from capsizing by tossing overboard most of its cargo. Reports state the crew of the Al Faisal were later rescued.
The 230 meter long, 11665 dwt ro-ro ferry Ficaria Seaways broke free of its moorings at Gothenburg, Sweden due to the severe weather. The lines holding the stern to the quay broke allowing the vessel to swing out into the river. Tugs were sent to the scene, but were unable to push the vessel back into position. The tugs attempted to drag the ferry to another berth when it bottomed-out causing damage to its propeller shaft and rudder. Reports state the water levels rose some 1.5 meters above normal due to the storm. No reports of injuries or pollution being released.
The 141 meter long, 14825 dwt tanker Ternholm became disabled while sailing from Grangemouth to Bro Fjord, Sweden. The Ternholm had suffered engine failure and began to drift towards the shore. The crew dropped both anchors which stopped the vessel from drifting further. Later, the crew was able to make repairs and restart the engine. The Ternholm continued on its voyage. No reports of injuries, damage or pollution being released.
