Sea services connecting Bali and Lombok, West Nusa Tenggara, were back to normal on Saturday as Lembar Seaport, which services marine transportation from West Lombok to Padangbai on Bali, reopened at 10 a.m. The seaport had been closed since Wednesday due to dangerously high seas.

KM Sindu and KM Rudita were the first two ferry boats to operate today.

“According to a report, the winds and waves are calm,” seaport operational manager Lunggu Simanjuntak said on Saturday as quoted by kompas.com.

High rainfall, strong winds and high waves over the past few days in West Nusa Tenggara had disrupted sea services connecting the two resort islands, causing a 3-kilometer tailback of trucks on Thursday afternoon. (swd)
