Stormy Weather Puts Hold on Ferries and Car Races

Strong winds and voluminous rainfall contributed to the interruption of Jet Express and Miller Boat Line Ferry services.  Put-in-Bay Car Races put a hold on events due to the stormy weather.

South Bass Island Lighthouse station reported a steady wind at 27mph out of  the north, with gusts at 31mph.  The National Weather Service issued a Gale Warning from Maumee Bay to the Islands at 2:51pm this afternoon.

Safe harbor in the city docks.

Lake Erie waves are from five to nine feet, with occasional eleven–footers in the open water.  Meanwhile, South Bass Island appears lonely and quiet . . .
