PHILLIPPINES: Typhoon hits shipping

Typhoon Haiyan, which swept through the Philippines in mid-November 2013, left a number of ships stranded or damaged, including many coasters and fishing vessels. The passenger ferry Super Shuttle Ferry 17, a converted landing craft operated by Jo Malia Shipping Corporation, sank at Mandaue City in Cebu after being swamped, while the 489gt cargo ship Andrea Princess, operated by Unilink Shipping, ran aground in Samar province.

In Leyte, eastern Philippines, the 151gt general cargo ship Lady of Good Success was swamped, while the 6,704gt Dutch container ship Schelde Trader was slightly damaged off Talisay, Cebu. The tugboat Metro Tug II capsized off Consolacion, Cebu and four barges were pushed aground in the Bohol area by winds which reached up to 320kph (199mph) in some areas. JS
