South of this area NMA recommend all masters and CSOs to carefully monitor the situation and consider necessary measures from the SSP. Masters are further advised to closely monitor deviations and failures of navigation and communication data due to disturbances.

NMA will continuously monitor the situation, and necessary updates will be published on our website.
