Strong Surf Blocks Entry for Brazil's Largest Port

April 28, 2016

An agitated sea has blocked the entrance to Brazil's largest port of Santos, preventing ships from entering or leaving for more than 12 hours during peak soy export season.

Nine ships were stopped from leaving the channel and 10 from entering since Wednesday evening, port authority Codesp said on Thursday.

Santos is the world's largest sugar exporting port and Brazil's top exporter of soybeans.
