Two vessels blown away by storm in Zhoushan

Two vessels docked at two separate shipyards in Zhoushan were blown away by a storm yesterday.

Chen Yang 10, which was under repair at Sinopacific Shipbuilding and Chang Ming Yang, under repair at Daishan Haizhou Shipyard, drifted away from the yards after the storm broke their anchor ropes.

Zhoushan Maritime Safety Administration sent three tugboats for rescue operations and managed to stabilize the two vessels. There were 26 crew onboard Chang Ming Yang, all of them evacuated from the ship safely.
