Costa Concordia Continues to Emerge

Divers continued to work to secure the starboard sponsons on the wreck of Costa Concordia through Thursday night and all day Friday. Operations will continue over Friday night.

The work has been completed on two of the three remaining starboard sponsons. As of tonight, those two have been lowered into their final positions, raising the wreck about one additional meter, and Deck 5 is almost out of the water.

One chain and three cables remain to be connected to the final starboard sponson, and work will continue through Friday night.

More of Costa Concordia emerged on Friday, and Deck 5 is now almost out of the water.
