A new video of the TS Taipei shipwreck shows the extent of the disaster that is unfolding in northern Taiwan as the vessel continues to break up and spill fuel and containers into the sea.

The ship ran aground March 10 and has been slowly breaking apart, with fears that both ends could capsize at any moment.

The Taiwanese government has been criticized for its slow response to the incident. In a statement March 26, the Environmental Protection Agency blamed heavy weather for hampering salvage and oil pumping operations.
