VLADIVOSTOK, October 26 (Itar-Tass) — A powerful autumn cyclone has hit Russia’s Sakhalin. The Vanino-Kholmsk ferry link across the Tatar Strait has been closed.
Winds reach the speed of 24 meters per second, and waves are up to four meters high, the Sakhalin meteorological centre reports. Four ferries, each capable to take on board 26 railway cars and 100 passengers, shelter from the cyclone in bays protected against winds and waves. The cyclone hovers not only over Sakhalin but also over the South Kurile Islands.
Winds reach the speed of 28 meters per second in the Sea of Okhotsk. Rescuers have warned Sakhalin residents against leaving their settlements, while tourist groups, hunters and fishermen are advised to wait out.
