ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION)
Timelapse video filmed on the eighth day of the Costa Concordia refloat operation has caught storm clouds floating menacingly over the ship.
The video filmed from 1200 (1000gmt) on Monday (July 21) until 0800 (0600gmt) on Tuesday (July 22) shows salvage workers moving around the ship and cleaning the prow overnight. The prow was raised from the water on Monday.
A storm hit Giglio island in the early hours of Tuesday morning and impressive cloud formations can be seen in the video.
The original plan to tow the wreck away was for Tuesday morning, but the departure date has been pushed back until Wednesday giving salvage workers additional hours to ensure everything is ready.
The Concordia's last journey to a port in Genoa is expected to take 4-5 days.
