The operations for the removal of the vehicles from the garages 3 and 4 of the ship NORMAN ATLANTIC have been completed, but there are still some trucks on these decks that shall be removed in due course. The vehicles were totally destroyed and most of them not identifiable due to their condition.

 The unloading operations in the lower garages 1 and 2 are expected to start in about one month, since preparatory works are held necessary to support the walls and roofs to avoid their collapsing. The vehicles in these garages should also held to be total losses, after having been exposed to extremely high temperatures, to toxic and chemical gases and fumes and their prolonged stay in conditions of humidity, decomposition etc.
