Mariners beware! A cargo ship lost a DOZEN large shipping containers just outside the Golden Gate on Friday evening when it encountered heavy seas! says:

The Manoa, an 810-foot cargo ship operated by Matson Navigation Co., was leaving the Port of Oakland en route to Seattle Friday evening when it encountered 19-foot waves and 20 mph winds just outside the Golden Gate Bridge, which caused 12 containers to slide off the ship, Coast Guard officials said.

Most of the containers were empty, which were loaded with various kinds of packing material, the Coast Guard said. None of the materials inside the containers are hazardous to marine life, officials said, but the owner of the ship hired an environmental contractor to track down the containers and clean up any debris that washes ashore. CEO Marc Benioff tweeted an image of one of the containers on rocks between Baker Beach and China Beach!
