The low water level will disrupt the transport of heavy vehicles on small island shipping lines this week.

From Monday, due to the low water level, there may be disturbances in the transfer of heavy trucks and buses on the Sviby-Rohuküla route with the passenger ferry Ormsö. Buses and heavy goods vehicles will not be transported if the water level is lower than -40 centimeters. Concrete trucks will not be transported if the water level is lower than -30 centimeters. The water level on Monday morning is -37 centimeters.

On the Manilaiu route, the passenger ferry Kihnu Virve will not transfer vehicles weighing more than 10 tons on Monday, and the same restriction applies to the Kihnu route.
