Crew rescued after ships collide during Dutch storm
Storm Corrie struck The Netherlands and UK on the heels of damaging Storm Malik.
The Netherlands Coast Guard rescued 18 crew members by air from a disabled cargo ship in the North Sea Monday. Storm Corrie's strong winds whipped-up waves and was blamed for the crash between a cargo ship and an oil tanker.
The ship took on water and lost steering capability after the collision knocked out the cargo ship's rudder. The tanker sustained damage but was able to continue on its journey.
Wind and waves battered coastlines across the Dutch coast.
