Trashed 168-foot tanker ship washes up on Staten Island
A 168-foot tanker ship washed up on Staten Island Monday night as high winds and floodwaters from Hurricane Sandy devastated most of the nation’s eastern seaboard.
The John B. Caddell, built in 1941, was moored about a mile out to sea to protect it from being damaged near land, but it was pushed ashore anyway.
Video shot Tuesday morning showed the Caddell was actually lifted up onto a road and left stranded before waters receded. In the words of WABC reporter Michelle Charlesworth: Staten Island this morning “looks like a warzone.”
