Recap: Here’s what happened today
This live page will soon be closing. Here’s a look at what happened today:

The Singapore-flagged Dali cargo ship was setting off from the Port of Baltimore to Colombo, Sri Lanka, when it apparently lost power and struck a pillar of the Francis Scott Key Bridge.
The collision caused the bridge to collapse into the Patapsco River, with a last-minute mayday call from the crew giving police just enough time to stop traffic.
Emergency responders rescued two people from the water. Another six were unaccounted for. They are all believed to be construction workers who were working at the bridge at the time of the collapse.
The federal transportation safety agency has said it will launch an investigation into the safety record of the cargo ship as well as the construction and design of the bridge.
US President Joe Biden has said he will seek funds from Congress to rebuild the bridge.
The collapse has caused all operations at the Port of Baltimore, one of the busiest maritime terminals in the US, to be suspended.

As expected:

Supply chain monitor warns of ‘vicious feedback loop’: 26 Mar 2024 - 21:28 (21:28 GMT)

The head of the supply chain management company Flexport has warned that Americans should expect shortages of goods in the wake of the bridge collapse.

“It’s not just the port of Baltimore that’s going to be impacted,” said Ryan Petersen, the company’s CEO.

Petersen explained that the port’s closure in Baltimore, Maryland, was just one factor contributing to shipping delays.

He pointed to ongoing attacks on cargo ships in the Red Sea, a waterway that connects Asia with Europe and the US. Petersen explained that those attacks have forced traffic away from the Suez Canal and around the tip of Africa, a longer route.

At the same time, there has been increased congestion in the Panama Canal.

The stresses create a “vicious feedback loop”, he said, adding his team was working to reroute about 800 shipping containers currently making their way to Baltimore’s port.

One patient still hospitalised, one released after rescue
A hospital official has said one person involved in the Baltimore bridge collapse is still being treated while another has been discharged.

Baltimore port: Coal to cars and cruise lines

It is the deepest harbour in Maryland’s Chesapeake Bay, closer to the Midwest than other East Coast ports, with five public and 12 private terminals.
It is one of the smallest container ports on the northeastern seaboard, handling 265,000 containers in the fourth quarter of last year.
It is the busiest US port for car shipments, handling more than 750,000 vehicles in 2023.
The port handles imports and exports for major automakers including Nissan, Toyota, General Motors, Volvo Cars, Jaguar Land Rover and Volkswagen, including luxury models for Audi, Lamborghini and Bentley.
It is also the largest US port by volume for handling farm and construction machinery, as well as agricultural products.
Imports of agricultural products totalled 3 million tonnes last year, including 1.2 million of sugar and salt, as well as gypsum, fertilisers and forest products.
Other top imports were paper/paperboard and plywood/veneer/particle board.
