DL 185 ATL-PVG diversion to SEA on July 8th

On Monday evening, I saw a Delta 777-200LR flying over Seattle on its way to SEA. Seeing a -200LR around here is pretty rare. I checked Flightradar24, and it showed its intended trip from ATL to PVG. Anyone have info as to why it diverted? Just an avgeek here who’s curiosity has got the best of him.
