The Vanino-Kholmsk ferry connecting Sakhalin and the mainland temporarily suspended work. The reason was the bad weather on the island and the storm in the Tatar Strait.

According to the press service of the Russian Emergencies Ministry in the Khabarovsk Territory, the crossing was closed on Monday morning, June 17. It is planned to open it after meteorological improvements, presumably by the morning of June 18. In the meantime, ferries wait out bad weather in the port of Vanino.

Because of the cyclone, which is now operating in Sakhalin, without electricity left several settlements in the region. Nowadays, the inhabitants of Korsakov, the villages of Okhotsk, Starodubskoe and Vzmorye, as well as Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk, remain partly without electricity.
