An RAF Sea King Helicopter prepares to drop salvage experts onto the Riverdance washed ashore off Blackpool.

The river dance was one of 3 ships lost that day off the UK. The ship was hit by a huge wave that shifted the vehicle cargo on the decks causing the ship to list violently. The crew were airlifted off by RAF helicopter before the ship ran aground. As climate change takes hold more and more damage is occuring as the weather becomes more violent. This is costing the insurance industry dear. Last year in the USA alone there were 15 severe weather events that cost over a $billion with the total for the USA last year around $350 billion.
