Rogue barge runs aground on Vancouver beach during massive windstorm

Rogue barge hits seawall

A rogue barge has been beached just offshore near Vancouver's West End.

The massive floating structure is currently floating but stuck on rocks just off the seawall at Sunset Beach where winds deposited it after it came unmoored further offshore.

The Coast Guard is aware of the situation. High tide is expected at 3 p.m. in False Creek today, Nov. 15.

The unusual sight has become popular on social media. Some caught it as it floated toward the city, while others have taken video and photos of it in its current position.
