QUẢNG NGÃI — After rough seas halted all sea travel for more than a week, thousands of people are now flocking to buy tickets to return to Quảng Ngãi Province’s Lý Sơn Island District for Tết. 

Vessels connecting the island and Sa Kỳ Port started running again on Wednesday. More than 1,200 travelled to the island on six vessels on the same day.

Nguyễn Hồng Khanh, said he had bought a ticket to return to the island for the Tết holidays, but was stranded in Quảng Ngãi City because of the bad weather.

Lê Tấn Hải, director of Sa Kỳ Port Management Board, said the port had worked with the provincial Maritime Administration to dispatch an additional 11 vessels to serve travelling demands.

Nguyễn Tấn Lự, captain of Chín Nghĩa 02 Vessel said his firm would help ensure that no one was left behind due to lack of vessels.

Nhâm Xuân Sỹ, director of the provincial centre for Hydro-meteorological Forecasting, said another cold spell bringing rough seas was expected to hit the province on Sunday. — VNS
