The Suez Canal got blocked by a massive 1300-feet long cargo ship.

SUEZ CANAL, EGYPT — Traffic along one of the world’s most important trade routes has come to a standstill as tugboats and excavation trucks do their best to dislodge the 400-meter (1300-feet!) long vessel.

The Suez Canal has been blocked by a giant container ship after a gust of wind blew it off course, causing it to run aground.

The MV Ever Given, a Panama-flagged container ship with an owner listed in Japan, “accidentally ran aground after a suspected gust of wind hit it,” said the ship’s operator.
