Oil Tanker Aground in Puerto Rico

The oil tanker Margara finds land the hard way as reported here:
The tanker grounded on its forward right side as it waited to enter a facility where it would transfer its shipment of oil, Castrodad said. Authorities were going to see if the vessel would refloat by itself at high tide later Thursday.
More photos of MT Margara here, along with some additional information.
UPDATE: Tallaboa is just south of Ponce on the south coast of Puerto Rico.

UPDATE: (4/28/06) High tide did not lift the vessel, which is being offloaded into barges as reported here.
