Strong winds keep ships docked in ports

The strong winds blowing in the Aegean, reaching up to 10 on the Beaufort scale, have kept many ships docked in ports around the country on Tuesday, including Piraeus.

Ferries departing from the port of Rafina are only going as far as Marmari port in Evia, while ferry routes from and to the port of Lavrio are running normally. The Rio-Antirrio and Kavala-Prinos ferry connections have been interrupted.

Ferries to the islands of Saronic Gulf are departing as normal from the port of Piraeus.

Passengers due to travel should contact port authorities or their travel agents before departure to be advised of any changes or cancellations due to the adverse weather conditions.
