Storm clouds gathered as Utnapishtim set the boat adrift. Utnapishtim shields himself inside the boat with the help of Puzuramurri, the caulker. He gives the caulker his home as thanks and settles in while the storm rages outside. Utnapishtim describes a terrible storm that lasts for seven days. Land now resembles an ocean. The storm is so thick that the gods cannot even see the earth from the heavens. Ishtar cries out in anguish over the loss of humanity.
