VLADIVOSTOK, January 3 (Itar-Tass) —— A strong cyclone hit the Southern Kuriles with the waves to reach 8-9 meters in the offshore area.
The cyclone came from Japan and hit the Iturup Island with about 6,000 people and the uninhabited islets north of Iturup. The winds reach 20 meters per second, the Sakhalin meteorological centre reported. A storm warning was declared in all Iturup settlements. The cyclone is expected to go along the whole Kurile chain on Tuesday.
A storm cyclone is also raging in the north of the Sea of Japan (the East Sea). The waves reach six metres in the Tatar Strait, which separates Sakhalin from the Russian mainland. The storm halted the Vanino-Kholmsk ferryboat line. Four ferryboats operate the line, each of them can carry 26 railway wagons and 100 passengers.
