Butane cylinders washed overboard from French freighter, Tuamotu Archipelago
General cargo ship NUKUHAU on Feb 18 was to call Atoll Anaa, Tuamotu Archipelago, French Polynesia, but wasn’t able to approach atoll because of strong wind and rough seas. She had to sail to Atoll Makemo, to shelter from storm raging in Tuamotu Archipelago waters. 11 gas cylinders containing butane were washed overboard, all or most part said to be spotted already, warning issued to all ships and boats in the area. NUKUHAU left Papeete, Tahiti, on Feb 17.
