Collision between ship and ferry, pollution is expanding

Genoa - The report comes from Greenpeace who processed satellite images showing that “the area affected by the contamination has gone from about 88 square kilometers on 8 October to 104 square kilometers yesterday, October 9th”.

Genoa - Satellite images on the collision of ships north of Corsica, in the area of the Cetacean Sanctuary, “show that contamination by hydrocarbons now affects over 100 square kilometers”. The report comes from Greenpeace who processed satellite images showing that “the area affected by the contamination has gone from about 88 square kilometers on 8 October to 104 square kilometers yesterday, October 9th”. The photos are from the Satellite Sentinel. “This is the umpteenth disaster that occurs in the Sanctuary of Cetaceans - observes the director of the Campaigns of Greenpeace Italy Alessandro Giannì - Recovering lost hydrocarbons is impossible. It is evident that this incident between the Virginia container port and the Ulysse ferry, about thirty miles northwest of Cape Corso, could be avoided.”
