More than 70 cargo containers lost at sea

I do not believe this has been mentioned yet. Last Saturday, March 3, 2018, 70 containers were lost at sea. The report indicated that a couple of the containers contained Sulfuric acid.

The Coast Guard is warning mariners to be on the lookout for more than 70 cargo containers lost at sea.

High wind and rough seas on Saturday caused 70 to 73 cargo containers to collapse or fall off a cargo ship about 17 miles off Oregon Inlet in North Carolina, the Coast Guard said in a Sunday news release.
