!!*!!~*The Black Sea Storm*~!!*!!

An environmental disaster began to unfold in southern Russia
in Nov 2007, as tens of thousands of oil-slicked seabirds and
globules of heavy oil dotted the shoreline, a day after at least
11 ships, including a small oil tanker, sank or broke apart in a fierce storm

The oil tanker Volgoneft-139 split in half and spilled more than
1,000 tons of fuel oil, and environmentalists expressed concern that
the effects of the spill would last for years. All of its crew were rescued.
