A Taiwanese cargo ship identified as DE XING (NO) was struck by an unknown cargo ship early in the morning of October 28, 2022, west of Penghu, Taiwan, Taiwan Strait, broke in two and sank, according to FleetMon.

It stated: “Of 13 crew on board, 9 were rescued, 2 were recovered dead, and 2 including Captain went missing, understood SAR is still underway, see map. DE XING was en route from Kaohsiung to Kinmen islands, understood it’s Taiwanese coastal freighter.

“Bulk carrier JUNIOR lost power in the afternoon Oct 30 and drifted towards Penghu islands. She dropped anchor but couldn’t stand against the strong wind, the anchor dragged. As of 1500 UTC Oct 31, it looks like she’s dragging anchor and drifting towards Penghu main island. Tugs can’t assist troubled ships because of the storm brought by typhoon NALGAE.
