For the first time since January 2012, the Costa Concordia is now upright. You can see in the above photo, from the live video stream, that the water line is now one deck below the bridge. That’s because she is sitting on a submerged platform on the sea floor. They will now begin the process to refloat her. Now that workers finally have access to her starboard side, they can add large floatation sponsors to her side. Once complete, they can finally refloat her.
