Watch out in New Zealand!

So this is where those shipping containers end up?

VIDEO: Cargo spills into the sea

A Liberian-flagged cargo ship is stuck 14 miles off the coast of New Zealand after it ran aground on a reef earlier this month. A crack from the deck to the waterline is clearly visible on the Rena, which has spilled about 350 tons of fuel oil into the sea.

The captain and second officer of the ship face criminal charges as the Rena continued to break up in rough seas after the Oct. 5 accident, according to the Associated Press.

Maritime New Zealand, which is managing the emergency response, described the crack as a "substantial structural failure," warning that the stern may break away.

Bummer. My Mom and a Nephew are scheduled to go to NZ in December for a kayaking and hiking trip along the coast. I'll need to find out where.
