On February 6, the 110 meter long self-propelled barge Aurelio ran aground in the Black Sea at the port of Constanta, Romania. The Aurelio had been at its berth when strong winds cause it to break the mooring lines. The Aurelio was blown across the port until it ran aground on a sandbank near the remains of an old shipwreck. No reports of injuries.
Authorities dispatched two vessels to help refloat the Aurelio. No reports of damage or pollution released.
