Reports state the Nordlys has gotten several pumps on board and are making progress in de-watering the vessel. The passenger ship list had steadily increased to 22 degrees and is at risk of capsizing. Salvage crews hope that pumps and the use of magnetic mats will halt any further water ingress.
Pollution is a concern as oil in the bunker tanks could be released into the water.
Passengers are being aided by authorities to help them return home. Nearly all passengers and crew were forced to leave their possessions on the ship.
