Some major damage at the port of Santo Domingo in the Dominican Republic after a ferry struck a pier while mooring on Thursday.
According to reports, the ferry had just arrived in Santo Domingo and was already partially tied up with its forward loading ramp down when the incident occurred.
The ferry, operated by Ferries Del Caribe, provides service between San Juan, Puerto Rico and Santo Domingo. It had only recently resumed service on May 3 after the fire on the Caribbean Fantasy last August put the service on hold.
