Large Vancouver Barge Unmoored in Stormy Weather

A barge broke from its moorings in Vancouver, British Columbia, on Monday, November 15, during extreme weather that brought strong winds and excessive rain to the Pacific Northwest.

This footage, posted by Mikala Folb, shows the barge after it ran aground at a seawall at Sunset Beach in Vancouver, local media reported.

The City of Vancouver closed Burrard Bridge on Monday night “due to the potential risk of the grounded barge at Sunset Beach coming loose and colliding with the bridge."

The bridge was reopened early on Tuesday. Credit: Mikala Folb/@BackstageRider via Storyful
