ALAN BERNER / THE SEATTLE TIMES
A storm outside Dutch Harbor, Alaska, toppled dozens of containers on the Arnold Maersk, a huge cargo ship that's now in Seattle to take care of the damage. A big wave that swept over the stern tossed 18 containers overboard and damaged about another 50, said Coast Guard spokeswoman Kathleen McCaffrey. Crews must remove the damaged containers before the ship can move on. The ship itself, which was traveling from Pusan, South Korea, didn't appear to need any repair. Incidents like this aren't uncommon, McCaffrey said, but on average, just five containers end up in the sea. This ship is getting a lot of attention, she said, because it can be seen from Highway 99.
