Ship runs aground in Geismar

GEISMAR, LA (WAFB) - The high water levels continue to create problems for ships trying to make their way down the Mississippi River. 
 
A ship ran aground in Geismar around 11 a.m. Thursday.

Apparently the swollen river is to blame for it veering off course.

No one was hurt, but the incident forced officials to shut down boat traffic on the river for almost two hours.
