TAURANGA, NEW ZEALAND - OCTOBER 12: In this handout provided by Maritime New Zealand, Fly-over shots of stranded cargo vessel Rena grounded on the Astrolabe Reef, on October 12, 2011 in Tauranga, New Zealand. The 47,000 tonne Rena, a Liberan container vessel, struck a reef on Wednesday causing an oil leak that has spread over five kilometres. Authorities are preparing for the worst environmental disaster in New Zealand history should the vessel break up and spill 1,700 tonnes of fuel into the Bay of Plenty.
