Fuel begins flowing from tanker to Nome
Crews on Monday afternoon began transferring 1.3 million gallons of fuel from a Russian fuel tanker to the iced-in Western Alaska city of Nome.
The offloading began near sundown, said Stacey Smith of Vitus Marine, the fuel supplier that arranged to have the Russian tanker Renda and its crew deliver the gasoline and diesel fuel. The process began after crews safety-tested two transfer hoses with pressurized air.
