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.
In the Kurilsk and Yuzhno-Kurilsk regions the wind is as strong as 18 metres a second, and a rain continues. Specialists forecast the hurricane wind approaching the Kuril Islands will be as strong as 40 metres a second.
Despite the cyclone, Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk’s airport and the Sakhalin railway work regularly. All car roads in the Sakhalin region are open. The cyclone will remain in the region for next two days.
