Something You Don't See Everyday
A 400-metre-long container ship is holding up traffic in the Suez Canal after becoming wedged sideways as it passed through the major shipping route.

The Ever Given attempted to pass through the canal while en route to Rotterdam, Netherlands but ran aground at about 6:00am Tuesday, local time, according to a report from maritime website Fleet Mon.

"As of 1440 UTC March 23, the giant ship was still aground with tugs attempting to refloat her," the website reported.

If you use the Vesselfinder (above) you can see the number of vessels stacked up from the north & south entries to the Canal

Trafficjam/Gridlock at its very worst.
