Intense developing storm affects north coast service
(Happy Valley-Goose Bay) -- An intensifying storm in the Labrador Sea is moving in quicker than initially forecasted, forcing Labrador Marine to abort its northward trip at Makkovik. Near-hurricane force winds of 40 to 55 knots are forecast from Thursday until Saturday or Sunday.
It was decided that given the extreme conditions forecast for a period of several days, the Kamutik W would return southward after unloading at Makkovik on Tuesday evening. The vessel will stop at Rigolet at 11 Wednesday morning and then continue to Goose Bay.
The Kamutik W will hold at Goose Bay until weather conditions improve. Labrador Marine will monitor weather conditions over the next several days and provide updates on our website at https://lmsi.woodwardgroup.ca.
