Poor weather conditions for MSC Flaminia

by Hans | July 31st, 2012

Since yesterday evening the team of firefighting experts is unable to go onboard MSC Flaminia due to bad weather conditions. In the coming days a further deterioration of the weather is predicted.

Therefore, MSC Flaminia and the group of tugboats have pulled out of the 200 mile zone and maintain a position approximately 200 miles off the British coast.

According to the salvage team on site the fire in cargo holds 4, 5 and 6 has been extinguished. However, smoke is visible above cargo hold 7 and the temperatures in this area are rising. MSC Flaminia is still listing by 10 degrees. A decision to enter a sheltered coastal area has not yet been made but is expected in the coming days.
