Stormy sea returns ship back to KKS harbour

[TamilNet, Wednesday, 10 January 2007, 04:47 GMT]
Rough seas and stormy weather forced a ship leaving from Kankesanthurai to Trincomalee to return back to Kankesanthurai harbour Tuesday. Meanwhile, hundreds of inhabitants on the coastal belt from Point Pedro Munai to Point Pedro harbour in Vadamaradchi north, spent Tuesday night in interior villages away fearing dangers from stormy waters, sources from Point Pedro said.

More than 350 civilians brought to Kankesanthurai Tuesday morning from Jaffna Sinhala Maha Vidyalayam and put on a ship bound to Trincomalee had to return to their homes.

The same passengers earlier put on a ship had to return due clashes between the Sri Lanka Navy and the Sea Tigers on Nagarkovil seas, the sources added.

Further, unloading food commodities from the ship 'Ruhunu', which had sailed into Point Pedro was canceled Tuesday and Wednesday because of the foul weather in the port.
