Vessels allowed to resume operations when the weather condition improved

As a result, by the middle of the day, up to 7,000 thousands of travellers were stuck on the island. Vessels were allowed to resume their operations when the weather condition improved at around 2 pm. However, only around 3,000 people left the island.

Local authorities asked hotels and restaurants on the island not to raise their service fees for tourists who have to stay more to wait for vessels.

A similar incident happened on June 14-16 last year, where more than 2,000 tourists were stuck the on the island due to the bad weather.
