Ferries crossing between the Gilimanuk Port in Bali and the Ketapang Port in Banyuwangi have been suspended due to heavy rainfall and strong winds over the Bali Strait.
The suspension has been in effect since 1:30pm Bali time, and normal service may resume upon clearance from authorities.
“All of the ships have docked until the weather clears up,” Gilimanuk official I Nyoman Sastrawan told reporters today.
There have been reports of waterspouts being spotted over the Bali Strait today, making the trip all the more risky for ferries.
