VLADIVOSTOK, April 7 (Itar-Tass) - The vast cyclone, which has covered the Far East, has closed the ferry service between Vanino and Kholmsk, which connects the Khabarovsk territory with Sakhalin Island.
In the region, the waves are six metres high, the local forecast service reported on Sunday.
Four ferryboats, where each of them carries a hundred passengers and 26 railway carriages, will remain at Vanino port for entire Sunday.
