'Aurelia' Drifting In Stormy Adriatic

Recommended Posts

The ferry's owners say mechanics on board are doing everything to fix the problem and bring passengers to shore.

A ferry carrying almost 350 people has been stranded off the coast of Split, Croatia.

One engine of the ferry 'Aurelia' malfunctioned, according to local Croatian media, which has caused the ship to drift into the Adriatic Sea.

The ferry, run by Italian firm SNAV, was travelling overnight from Ancona in Italy to Split when it experienced technical problems. According to reports, two tugboats have been sent to help the stranded ferry, although strong winds meant they had to turn back. “Since the whirlwinds were blowing more than five meters in the meantime, it was decided that they were not adequate and returned to the port of departure,”
