Authorities in the port city of Dalian said 64 fishermen were trapped yesterday on ships off the coast by strong gales and unable to come ashore, Xinhua reported. The 60km/h gales had created waves about 5 metres high and trapped the fishermen on more than 20 vessels 300 metres off Dawangjia Island in the Yellow Sea, Xinhua said. Authorities had launched a rescue operation. Staff Reporter
