#Diving - The Times of Malta reports that an Irish diver was rescued off the Mediterranean island in rough seas yesterday (Tuesday 2 October).

The operation at the Wied il-Mielah Window was one of two separate rescues by the Armed Forces of Malta yesterday, as four other foreign divers were retrieved in the Wied il-Ghasri area.

Malta was subject to floods after sudden storm conditions brought a torrential downpour yesterday afternoon.

We've got a favour to ask

More people are reading Afloat.ie than ever thanks to the power of the internet but we're in stormy seas because advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news sites, we haven’t put up a paywall because we want to keep our marine journalism open.

Afloat.ie is Ireland's only full–time marine journalism team and it takes time, money and hard work to produce our content.

So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

If everyone chipped in, we can enhance our coverage and our future would be more secure. You can help us through a small donation. Thank you.
