Most of the newspaper reports that I have seen recently have various versions of the following info ....
  • The majority of the fuel is in the front six tanks of the ship. If the harsh weather holds off, they expect to have those emptied within a week so they can concentrate on the tanks that are less at risk to spill into the sea.
  • Costa currently is accepting bids to get the ship out of the water and into dry dock so repairs can be made. Officials have said that it could take 10-12 months to get the ship removed from the reef
That is of course if the ship doesn't slip off the reef & break up.
