While crossing the Pacific in late February 2008, M/V CMA CGM Dahlia ran into a strong storm, suffering significant damage.  The vessel makes it to the Port of Manzanillo, Mexico where Emergency Services stand by to assess the damage.  Containers hang off the starboard side since the storm hit, with more damaged on the stern.
