The 2,992 TEU container ship, OOCL Belgium was caught in the middle of the North Atlantic this week experiencing first-hand winter storm Hercules, a huge low pressure system that forecasters say could be creating waves of over 20 metres tall.

 

Those are the type of rolls where you look out the port or starboard bridge wing and see nothing but the waves directly next to the ship, and then the next moment, all you see is sky while you try to hang on to something. In some cases serious damage happens to the ship. Actually in this case, unconfirmed reports indicate the OOCL Belgium may have sustained some cracking and she is currently being inspected in Liverpool.
