All weekend, Costa Concordia has been slowly rising out of the water. By dawn Monday morning it was apparent the ship had risen dramatically in the last 24 hours. Eleven meters have emerged with three more to go before it reaches the required draft to tow to Genoa. The operations center reports that sponson S4 has now been lowered almost fully. Work is in progress to lower S5 and S14.
Departure from Giglio is now planned for Wednesday, July 23.
