The 71 meter long tanker Scan Master ran aground at Hemnskjela in Snillfjord, Norway. The Scan Master was en route to Averøy when strong winds and heavy seas pushed the tanker onto the rocky beach. No reports of injuries to the 6 crew on board, damage or pollution released. Bad weather delayed the Scan Master to be refloated until conditions improved and favorable tide. The cause of the grounding was under investigation.
