Bali Hit By Spat of Stormy Weather

Bali News: Bali Hit By Spat of Stormy Weather

(1/14/2011)

The continuing effects of La Nina in combination with tropical storm system Vince located off the western coast of Australia are playing havoc on ferry, fishing, water sports and general ship operations in Bali.

The Indonesian Meteorology and Geophysics Station for District III (BKMG-Denpasar) has issued a reminder to the public, especially those involved in sea-related activities, to be cautious of high waves of 3 meters and more being encountered in the waters surrounding Bali.

”We remind fishermen with small vessels to remain on guard. We hope they will remain ashore until the weather improves,” said Satria Topan Pribadi, a forecaster for BKMG-Denpasar, on Thursday, January 13, 2011.

Because of higher than normal seas states, the Padang Bali (Bali) to Lembar (Lombok) ferry crossing was closed for 13 hours, reopening again on Thursday morning.

Meanwhile, fishermen at Kedonganan beach near Bali’s airport are said to be sheltering ashore, frightened to set sail in the current high seas.

Similarly, several Bali-based marine operators have altered or curtailed sailing schedules until conditions improve.

The public planning sea crossings or sea outings should contact their travel agent or the relevant sea operator for the latest weather updates and any possible changes to scheduled operations.

During the same week, Bali suffered heavy rains from a particularly strong storm front that swept across the southern island on Monday evening, January 10, 2011, bringing strong winds that caused some property damage and uprooted trees in some areas.
