Economy Class and half of Business Class is now fully submerged under water. The water level is continually rising and the aircraft is full of thick black smoke that is emanating from the nose. It is now difficult for the passengers to see one another.

The remaining conscious passengers have ascended vertically through the vessel and taken refuge in First Class. WOMAN TWO flips open a side window, a window thats too small for a human escape, but big enough to divert the smoke.

Chance of Rain: 100%
Precipitation: N/A in
Pressure: 4.56 inHg
