Thanks to @planetlabs satellite imagery capture this morning, we can see that the fire aboard the #FrontAltair has now been extinguished, but we can also see a massive hole. Thankfully, such tankers have dual-layered hulls & multiple storage compartments. #OOTT
@planetlabs In addition to that, we can also see from @MarineTraffic maritime data that both tankers are currently being tugged towards Fujairah, UAE. #FrontAltair #KokukaCourageous #OOTT
Good morning! We may be away from our desks this AM but the @MarineTraffic app is clearly showing progress as both tankers are being tugged into the anchorages of Fujairah and/or Khor Fakkan.

Here is the first @NASA satellite image taken this morning of (what seems to be based on AIS pos) the #FrontAltair tanker. We had to enhance the original. We noted the distress call times as reported by @katiemcque. A couple of tugboats in the area have diverted to assist. #OOTT
This is the original satellite image. We're waiting for additional sources.
Data captured by @esa (delivered via @sentinel_hub) shows a 25km long smoke plume blowing west at 05:49 UTC (09:49 local time). That's 3.5 hours after initial distress call. Also, in three days time, weather forecast has #CycloneVayu approaching the area at 160km/h.
