"Ship traffic has been unrestricted since 1 a.m. Currently, the wind speed is 8-10 meters per second," Dovilė Ringis, the port's spokeswoman said, told BNS on Thursday.

The winds subsided to 12-17 m/s on Wednesday afternoon, from up to 27 m/s in the morning, but nine ships were waiting to enter the port and two were waiting to leave it.
