A Panama-flagged tanker ran aground in the river Elbe in the morning hours of January 21, 2019, Central Command for Maritime Emergencies Germany said. 

The 12,500 dwt ship, Oriental Nadeshiko, grounded near Cuxhaven while en route from Bützfleth, Germany to Tarragona, Spain. The ship is laden with some 9,000 tons of dangerous goods cargo.
