SEATTLE -- Gale-force wind gusts stirred up Puget Sound Sunday, causing some scares for passengers on Washington State Ferries.

Viewer Jeremy Ridgway took the above video of several large waves crashing into cars parked on a ferry headed to Anacortes from Friday Harbor.

Ridgway said the force of the waves pushed some cars into each other.

A WSDOT Ferries spokesman could not talk about specific details regarding that instance but said safeguards were in place because of the winds.

Those safeguards include sailing slower and avoiding windier corridors.

The San Juan ferries were on storm routes all day Sunday resulting in delays.

A WSDOT Ferries spokesman said sailing is ultimately the captain's decision.

A Wind Advisory is in effect until 10 p.m. Sunday for San Juan County, western Whatcom County, and the Admiralty Inlet Area. Wind south to southeast 20 to 35 mph with local gusts 50 to 55 mph are possible.
