Quick action saved the 5485 dwt freighter Rusich 1 off the shores of Lisbon, Portugal. The Rusich 1 had been at anchor when heavy seas from the North Atlantic storm Hercules caused the anchor to drag. The crew were able to start the engines just before the vessel was blown ashore. The Rusich 1 proceeded further out to sea. No reports of injuries, damage or pollution release.
