Barge ashore off Vigan
On July 6, a 125 meter long barge was blown ashore along the shoreline of Vigan, Ilocos Sur, Philippines. The barge had floated away after its towline broke from the tugboat Trabajador 1. The 69 meter long, 1039 dwt Trabajador 1 was proceeding to Bataan when big waves and strong winds brought on by Typhoon Egay snapped the towing line resulting with the barge washed on to a nearby beach. No reports of injuries.
