In terms of volume, this is the second worst grounding in US waters,
Ship ran aground well offshore in narrow but well-marked channel into Lake Charles.
We have no info on cause.
Oil came ashore as far west as Houston.
The ship must have been traveling at a fair speed,
for the whole hull buckled just aft of the aft end of the focsle bulwark.
Big crack extends all the way up to maindeck.
Double hull would not have helped in this one.
