Suez Canal Blockage: At least 367 ships were stuck in the Suez Canal for the last one week. Goods ranging from crude to cattle were being sent on these ships.
After the ship got stuck last week, the concern of all the big engineers of the world was increased. Actually, after the ship got stuck, efforts were constantly being made to get it out. But success was not being achieved. This ship was stuck between big stones. It is said that about 950000 cubic fit of sand pushed it under 60 feet of water. In such a situation, when the engineers did not succeed in getting it out of the crane and tugboat, they all started waiting for the full moon night.
How did the ship come out of the supermoon?
While circling the Earth, there comes a time when the Moon is closest to the Earth. Due to being very close to the Earth, the moon appears very big and bright during this time. This is called a supermoon. During this time, high tide increases in water due to gravity. Due to which the water level rises from one to one and a half feet. It is also called Spring Tide. This happens twice a month. Something similar happened in Suez Canal too. Due to the increase in the level of water, this ship started coming upwards automatically. So the engineers got help in pulling it.Read also: – Ramnavami procession in Jharkhand has become politically fast due to ban, SC can be the case

At least 367 ships were stuck in the Suez Canal for the last one week. Goods ranging from crude to cattle were being sent on these ships. The MV Ever GIVEN ship is the largest cargo ship in the world. The incident occurred when a gust of sand arose on the banks of the 120-mile-long canal due to strong winds. This waterway is narrow. The crew lost control of the ship due to strong winds and reached the sandy shore.
