This is breaking news on the Sky News website.

I hope this turns out to be an non-event, a spill anywhere is disastrous, the arctic would be no exception.

They say that there is no leak on the ship, and that there is no damage, so i'm not sure where they get the impreesion that it's at risk of spilling.

Unless it's due to the lack of stability of the ship? Either way, my thoughts are with all those involved.

I'll see if i can find more on this story...

It would appear that the tanker is owned by this company, Woodward's Oil, part of the Woodwards Group...


Woodward Group of Companies, headquartered in Happy Valley-Goose Bay, NL is a diversified organization which provides marine services in the transportation of freight, passengers and fuel within Newfoundland and Labrador and the Canadian Arctic. Woodward’s Oil has been serving the home heating fuel and gasoline requirements of Labrador customers since the early 1960’s

Everything happens in 3's?
Seriously though I think that its clear where we are all headed.
I suppose that the angels will be pouring the bowls of gods anger. Guess we'll see 911 when the sun is facing us from the active side. If there's a huge earthquake pretty soon then it goes without saying?
Peace talks 3 involved
3 hurricanes
What ever next.
3 cricket players suspended?

So there we have it the large quake? new zealand.
Actually no this isn't the quake I was talking about. I've a feeling this is one of a few but the large one will be in co with the timeline of a volcanic eruption.
