Search and Recovery of MH370 Suspended Due to Weather Conditions

The search for the Flight MH370 was suspended today due to poor weather conditions in the search area.

The Australian Maritime Safety Authority (AMSA) informed that the search and recovery operation will continue on Wednesday, 26th of March.

HMAS Success will return to the site tomorrow to conduct a surface sweep of an area identified by a Royal Australian Air Force P3 Orion as the location for several objects of interest.

Australia, New Zealand, the United States, Japan, China and the Republic of Korea are included in the search, and India plans to join.

China’s polar supply ship Xue Long (Snow Dragon) and three other Chinese ships are expected to arrive in the search area on Wednesday.

The Malaysian Minister Najib Razak yesterday confirmed that aircraft MH370, which went missing with 239 people onboard, had crashed off the coast of Perth, Australia.
