Fog Closes Traffic On Houston Ship Channel

January 17, 2001

Thick fog halted all traffic on the Houston Ship Channel Wednesday, the Houston Pilots association said. Pilots who guide ships along the 54-mile channel stopped boarding vessels at 10:10 p.m. CST (11:10 p.m. EST) Tuesday evening. "Nothing has moved since then," an official with the pilots association said. The official said he did not know when the fog was expected to clear and shipping could resume. The ship channel is a busy waterway lined with oil refineries and petrochemical plants that links the Port of Houston to Galveston Bay and the Gulf of Mexico. - (Reuters)
