Thanks for the responses! Looks like things are much calmer today, which I imagine is a relief to those who live there.
a lot of salt spray on the lens today they will have to wait until the weather improves before they clean it.T cameras could do with washers ans wipers.
it is rough today,just watching the roll on the ferry today glad I'm not on it today.
Kathryn, service was halted this morning for a couple of hours. Way back it used to be a regular occurrence with the old boats. Either stopping the service completely or use the Sa Maison jetty in Marsamxett harbour. Nowadays, the new boats are much stronger than the ones we had before. They rarely stop during the day, but they do cancel trips when it's bad weather and dark especially
just as a follow on have a look at the new cam in Gozo to see how calm it looks there
Not these days to my knowledge. There is always enough shelter between the 2 quays but from what I see today they are routing the other side of Comino to gain a slightly easier crossing. When I first came in 1965 it was more of a lottery as to if the ferry was working on a rough day
Perhaps this has been asked and answered, and if so I apologize - I was curious if they ever halted ferry service due to weather. The seas look terribly rough today and I know I wouldn't want to be out on them! I've seen the other jetty used on occasion but was wondering if they ever stopped them.
I'm aware of that Noel. The wind is blowing in all directions though today but obviously not bad enough to use a different jetty.
it all depends on the wind direction and the relative swell, Kate
Given the strong winds of this morning I'm surprised to see the ferry coming into its normal jetty. Stay safe folks.
Linda, it usually is green in Malta in winter. Last winter was an exception due to a dry winter and hardly any rain. This year, as you'll have seen from the storms, been a lot of rain and strong winds. Had another thunderstorm earlier hours of this morning with heavy rain.
Hello Malta I hope to make my 60th visit on February 28th So looking forward to the walking I do. I was there in November for 3 weeks and last April for I week. Im keeping my eye on the weather via the web cams looks lovely and green now .
