MSC Flaminia

Giant container ship that mysteriously but apparently spectacularly caught fire and/or exploded. Then, also spectacularly, she was towed across the ocean with a giant hole in her middle yet didn’t sink. According to her manifest, and manifestly, the Flaminia had been carrying hazardous materials, so many ports refused to allow the damaged ship to dock for repairs. Finally she was accepted by the new JadeWeserPort in Wilhelmshaven, where cleanup will be long and difficult.
