KHABAROVSK, November 5 (Itar-Tass) — The Vanino-Kholmsk ferry service on Monday resumed operation after a two-day break because of the storm in the Tatar Strait, the dispatch service of the ferry service told Itar-Tass.
Three ferries have left Vanino port for Sakhalin and the loading of the fourth vessel is ending. They cover the 260 kilometre distance to Kholmsk in 14 hours. The arrival to the island of the Sakhalin-7 ferry, which was the first to take to sea, was expected around 17:00 p.m., local time.
The ferry service was suspended on November 3. All the ferries took shelter from the storm in the bays near the mainland coast. The waves in the strait were 5-6 metres high. By Sunday evening, the storm began to subside.
