LMIU entry appears to be a cleaned up copy of a machine translated local French report. It is unlikely this ship would be discharging at a refinery, so she was probably at least part-loaded. The French version makes it clear the cause was a loss of power, not the wind, puts the time at 0230, and indicates the loss of power was brief. Ship grounded on the East Jetty, so she was just leaving. She was lucky the tide was rising.
