Impressive, but I would not be there...

The 2,992 TEU container ship, OOCL Belgium was caught in the middle of the North Atlantic last week (video is from January 1st), experiencing first-hand winter storm Hercules, a huge low pressure system that forecasters say could be creating waves of over 20 meters tall. Unconfirmed reports indicate the the OOCL Belgium may have sustained some cracking and she is currently being inspected in Liverpool.
