The 74 meter long general cargo vessel Gulfem Kalkavan ran aground in the Marmara Sea near Tuzla, Turkey. The Gulfem Kalkavan had been laid up offshore near the shipyards when the severe storm struck. The anchors dragged on the cargo vessel allowing it to run ashore. The Gulfem Kalkavan hull was punctured against the rocky shoreline allowing water to flood the aft section of the cargo ship. No reports of injuries.
