The wind is wreaking havoc on people planning to take the ferry from Keystone on Whidbey Island to Port Townsend today.
The 11:15 a.m. sailing from Port Townsend and the noon from Keystone are canceled due to high winds.
If you're heading to Grandma's house a day early for Thanksgiving, the alternate routes will be Edmonds/Kingston and Mukilteo/Clinton. Updates will occur when conditions change.
Earlier today, the 8:45 a.m. from Keystone and the 9:30 a.m. from Port Townsend were scratched due to the windy weather.
As of 11 a.m. Wednesday, AccuWeather.com reported 30 mile per hour winds from the southeast in nearby Oak Harbor.
