Jan. 4 (Bloomberg) -- Houston Ship Channel pilots stopped boarding inbound and outbound vessels this morning after fog reduced visibility on the approach to the largest U.S. petroleum port, according to the Coast Guard Vessel Traffic Service.
Three ships were waiting to enter the port as of 7:14 a.m. local time after pilots suspended boarding at 6 a.m., Albert Hernandez, a watch supervisor with the service, said in an interview. Two ships were waiting to leave Houston.
