U.S. Warship Breaks Down during Transit of Panama Canal

PANAMA CITY – A U.S. Navy guided-missile destroyer suffered a mechanical problem while crossing the Panama Canal and is undergoing repairs at a Panamanian facility, the U.S. Embassy in the Central American nation said on Wednesday.

The USS Zumwalt experienced a loss of propulsion Monday night as it transited the inter-oceanic waterway and was towed to the former U.S. Naval Station Rodman, located at the Pacific entrance to the canal.

Rodman now belongs to the Panamanian aero-naval service.

The Zumwalt was en route from Norfolk, Virginia, to San Diego at the time of the engineering incident.

“The schedule for the ship will remain flexible to enable testing and evaluation in order to ensure the ship’s safe transit to her new homeport in San Diego,” said the U.S. 3rd Fleet spokesman, Cmdr. Ryan Perry.
