Oil spill in the Kerch

Description

The Strait of Kerch. It connects the Azov and the Black Seas. On November 11, 2007 near the Russian port of "Kavkaz" there were fifty nine vessels. A third of them oil tankers. That day the Strait of Kerch was hit with a storm of 6 7 points magnitude. The tanker "Volganeft-139" was the first to get hit. A wave 4.5 meters high literally broke the tanker in half. More than a thousand tons of crude oil poured out into the sea. Several hours later the dry-cargo ships "Volnogorsk" and "Nakhichevan" sank with granulated sulphur onboard. For the Strait of Kerch the crude oil leak became a serious ecological catastrophe.
