Fortunately the landing craft did not experience much damage because it was washed ashore on a sand area.
Two other boats MV Bikoi 2 and LC Dragon have also been blown ashore last week.
While LC Dragon has been removed, MV Bikoi 2 is still stuck at the central market wharf because it received extensive damages.
