General cargo ship LUCKY STAR 8 at around 0000 UTC Feb 4 ran aground, or more probably, drifted aground, in Olga Bay, northern Primorye, Russia, Japan sea. The ship arrived from Pyeongtaek, Korea (so she should be in ballast), late Feb 3 local time, and was anchored. Weather said to be stormy, with NW wind up to 15 ms, and assumedly, anchor dragged, ship drifted on beach, as drift track coincides with wind direction. Refloating postponed until weather improves, port tug is to assist.
