The 49 meter long fishing vessel Take Maru 55 ran aground off Cocos Island, Guam. The tuna boat was driven ashore as Tropical Storm Halong lashed the area with strong winds and heavy rain. The six crew on board abandoned ship and swam 700 yards to safety. The crew sheltered in the island’s resort until conditions improved enough to allow rescuers to arrive. No reports of injuries. Local authorities arrived and transferred the crew to Guam. The U.S. Coast Guard has launched an investigation into the incident.
