Last week the Celebrity Infinity, a 90,000 ton cruise ship, rammed the pier at Ketchikan, Alaska, causing several million dollars' worth of damage to itself and the dock. Here's what it looked like from the shore.
Apparently there was a strong wind blowing from seaward at the time, which made it more difficult to stop the ship. It'll take several months to replace the shore facilities. The ship's already docked in Vancouver, Canada to undergo repairs.
