Lithuanian port of Klaipėda to resume operations after stormy weekend

Seventeen ships were awaiting entry into the port and six vessels were awaiting exit, Adomas Alekna, the Harbour Master, told BNS.

“The wind is getting weaker now, as are the waves. If the situation continues to improve, we will try to lead two ships out of the harbour and lead another two into the port. If the conditions are favourable, we will resume ship traffic,” he said.

Powerful winds disrupted operations at the port and also left some 5,000 customers of Lesto, the power grid operator, without electricity on weekend. Power supply has basically been restored by Monday morning.

Several dozens of customers still had no power at around 7 AM on Monday, Martynas Burba, Lesto spokesman, told BNS.

“The grid is working in its usual mode and its operations are stable. We expect electricity supply to be fully restored by Monday noon,” he said.
