The 160 meter long, 24,148 dwt bulk carrier Xin Mao ran aground off Taizhou, China. The bulk carrier was at anchor when strong winds from the approaching typhoon caused its anchors to drag. The Xin Mao attempted to heave its anchor and maneover away from shore when it suffered a mechanical fault. The crew sent out a distress call asking to be evacuated off the vessel. Reports state all 14 crew were later rescued by authorities from Taizhou. No reports of injuries.
