. . HELSINKI - A Baltic Sea ferry with 331 passengers and a crew of 98 runs aground on Saturday in the archipelago of the Aland Islands between Finland and Sweden in a strong storm wind. Finnish authorities said there was "no life in imminent danger" and that the divers-inspected ship did not leak. The Finnish Coast Guard tweeted Saturday afternoon that the Viking Line ferry, which operates between the Finnish port city of Turku and the Swedish capital Stockholm, landed just outside the port of Mariehamn, the capital of the Aland Islands. The Coast Guard tweeted a photo of the M / S Viking Grace being stuck just offshore. “Viking Grace ran aground off Mariehamn. Firmly grounded, no leaks. . . . The first rescue units are on site, "says the tweet. A spokeswoman for Viking Line ferry company Johanna Boijer-Svahnstrom told Finnish public broadcaster YLE that passengers would stay on the ship overnight before being evacuated ashore on Sunday. The Finnish Coast Guard said they would monitor the ship all night and that the rescue workers were on standby. The ship was en route from Stockholm to Turku with a planned stop in Mariehamn. At that time there were strong storm winds in the area. Coast Guard officials told the Finnish media that the Viking Grace, a large ship that could carry up to 2. Can carry 800 passengers, was near the coast when for some reason it appeared to be floating towards land. Jan Hanses, CEO of Viking Line, told YLE that a strong gust of wind likely "pushed the ship ashore" in the narrow passage near Mariehamn harbor. The number of passengers on board the Viking Grace has been exceptionally low due to the COVID-19 travel restrictions currently in force in the Nordic countries. In September, Viking Line's M / S Amorella passenger ferry also ran aground in the Aland Islands, an autonomous Finnish territory made up of thousands of named and unnamed islands. The shallow water and narrow passages are particularly difficult for large ships to navigate. No one was injured in the September incident. Jari Tanner, The Associated Press
