Same article that Alana posted under the shipping companies thread, but I am just noting that the article says that 70 to 73 containers were LOST. That sucks!

Source article Shipping Delays

So also what that means to us, is BUY EXTRA stuff at the stores while you can get it.

That ship was sailing from Norfolk to Charleston. I checked their website and I don't think Maersk Line sails to the Virgin Islands.

The ship that dumped the containers was routed to SE Asia from the US east coast.

No need to stock up.

Don't believe everything you read here.

Thank you Gator's Mom for the "Fact Check"
