MSC Napoli - second day of explosions

Yesterday an attempt was made to split apart the Napoli by setting off explosions just forward of the accommodation block where her hull has already been rent. There was a perception that this would not be sufficient; this proved to be the case and so today, just after 2 pm, they detonated more explosions. I've not had confirmation that Napoli has been totally split in two but would imagine that she is now sufficiently weakened for the tugs to pull her apart.

Branscombe will be keeping its fingers crossed!
