The adverse windconditions in the Mediterranean makes evacuation of foreigners fromLibya by sea difficult.

This morning a galewarning was made by Athens’ meteorological center valid from 04:30this morning til 16:00.

The both fast ferries M/FOsman Gazi and M/F Orhan Gazi are still in Marmaris, waiting for abetter sea conditions.

The civilian ferry M/FSamsun was last seen on AIS, off the coast of Crete. As there is abig gap of AIS coverage in the middle of the Mediterranean, betweenGreece and Libya it is not clear whether she has proceed to Libya orwaiting for a better weather. Her sister M/F Ankara left Istanbulyesterday is off the coast Greece again waiting for a better weather.

Yesterday the Ministry ofForeign Affairs reported that the military ferry A-1600 TCGIskenderun docked at Bengazi harbor at 13:10 local time. In theevening the Ministry of Foreign Affairs announced that passengerswere embarking to TCG Iskenderun.

But, as I write these blog post, it was still not clear whether she has left Libya with passengers ornot.

It seems that to day themajority of the evacuations will be done by air, as the gale in theMediterranean makes sea voyages extremely difficult.
