About 200 ships await passage through the Kerch Strait, where a storm is raging. This was announced by Rosmorrechflot's press officer Alexei Kravchenko, reports TASS.
Due to the strong wind, the disembarkation of pilots is prohibited, so foreign ships cannot go further. The wind speed is around 15m/s, and the wind is predicted to increase to 18m/s.
“ About 100 ships [awaiting passage] from north to south, from south to north also about 100 & # 39; & # 39 ;, & ndash; Kravchenko clarified.
Recall that in Crimea today and tomorrow there is a storm warning due to rains and strong winds. Bad weather left tens of thousands of Crimeans without light. Work on a car ferry crossing Sevastopol Bay has been stopped.
The same weather is observed in Turkey. The movement of ships on the Bosphorus is temporarily suspended.
