Hurtigruten ship aground

No passengers had been on board and nobody within the crew is claimed to have been injured. The alarm concerning the grounding got here in only after 9 o’clock.

— The ship studies that it’s leaking water. They assume that there was a gap in a ballast tank, says Anja Bakken at Hovedredningsentralen to NRK.

Ballast tanks are used to offer ships stability.

The Sognefjord, which stretches 205 kilometers inland, is Norway’s longest fjord.
