The important thing is that no one was killed and everything is still afloat.
The U.S. Navy destroyer USS Porter suffered significant damage after colliding with an oil tanker in the Strait of Hormuz on Sunday.Let's wait to see what that facts are, but at this point odds are what always is - Vince Lombardi applies; fundamentals, fundamentals, fundamentals. CBDR, workload, quality spread among watchstanders, etc ...
The USS Porter was passing through the Strait of Hormuz into the Persian Gulf.
The Japanese-owned, Panamanian flagged tanker M/V Otowasan was coming the other way, just entering the Strait of Hormuz, and the two crashed into one another.
Shocking but true - best pics at HuffPo. C5F has video of PORTER underway here on FB, and thanks to Nick we also have the video below.
