SHORT NEWS: International shipping is being warned about the case of thirteen 40 foot containers that went overboard from the container ship MSC Chloe, 22 nautical miles outside the South African port Durban. Ships in this area are encouraged to keep eyes open in these waters.

The containers went overboard last week when the container ship - which was waiting for a spot in Durban - was hit by some very large waves, which made the ship turn 30 degrees.

Another 25 containers were damaged, but did not go overboard.
