As Morski writes on the 12th of November, 2019, lighthouse keepers from Susac sent the portal a video taken this morning showing what they’ve been witnessing from their positions as the stormy jugo wind gives the land and the sea a thorough battering.
”Good morning, greetings from the Susac lighthouse,” say the lighthouse keepers from Susac briefly, adding that in the afternoon, they’re expecting orkansko jugo (an even stronger southeastern wind that ravages the Adriatic).
Indeed, if the stormy jugo looks like this on Susac, we can only imagine what it will look like when the waves climb over five, and sometimes even over metres in height, with incredibly strong gusts of south up to seventy knots, as forecasters have announced for this afternoon. Fortunately, lighthouses are very safe at about 100 metres above sea level, but sailors and other boaters are advised not to go out to sea at all.
It’s worth recalling that owing to the stormy jugo that is currently giving parts of the coast a beating, a red meteo alarm has been activated for almost the whole of the Croatian Adriatic, which means that the weather is dangerous.
Owing to the adverse weather conditions which are for the most part expected to worsen before long, there have been maritime traffic alterations and interruptions. At the time of this article having been written, the interruptions at sea for ferry lines and other vessels are as follows:
Ferry lines: Sućuraj-Drvenik, Split-Vela Luka-Ubli, Šibenik-Zlarin-Kaprije-Žirje
Shipping lines: Zadar-Preko, Milna-Rogac-Split, Komiža-Biševo, Mali Losinj-Unije-Susak
Catamaran lines: Korčula-Hvar-Split, Ubli – Vela Luka – Hvar – Split, Vis-Split, Split-Bol-Jelsa, Zadar-Premuda-Silba-Olib, Dubrovnik-Mljet-Lastovo
