Storm Delays Tusty Sailing

Jay Barrett/KMXT
The winter storm overnight forced the state ferry Tustumena to spend the night in its homeport of Kodiak. Last night’s 9:45 p.m. sailing to Homer was cancelled as was this morning’s scheduled run from Homer to Seldovia.
The Marine Highway System expects to announce an updated schedule this morning.
A storm warning remains in effect for the waters between the Kenai Peninsula and Kodiak, with northeast winds to 50 knots and seas to 17 feet. In addition, a heavy freezing spray warning is in effect for the Barren Islands west, Cook Inlet and Kachemak Bay.
