PERTH, Australia (AP) – Planes and ships searching the southern Indian Ocean for possible debris from Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 have failed to find any before stormy weather cut today’s hunt short.

Thailand says one of its satellites has detected 300 objects of various sizes about 125 miles from the area where a French satellite on Sunday spotted 122 objects. The Thai image was captured Monday.

The Australian Maritime Safety Authority says “there was no visibility” in the search area today because of the heavy rain, winds and low clouds, and the abbreviated aerial search was “not useful.”

Planes have been flying out of Perth for a week, looking without any success for the objects spotted in vague satellite images. Finding them could give physical confirmation that Flight 370 crashed and allow searchers to narrow the hunt for the wreckage of the plane and its black boxes.
