According to a report from the Brisbane Times, a steering fault caused a container ship to run aground in Moreton Bay off Brisbane. The 217-metre MSC Basel was leaving the Port of Brisbane and ran aground on the Yule Bank, five kilometres north of Moreton Island, at about 9.30 a.m., Nov. 1. Two tug boats were being sent to help remove the Singapore-bound vessel, but it refloated with the rising tide about midday.
