Houston Ship Boardings Resume After Fog Lifts, Coast Guard Says

Dec. 13 (Bloomberg) -- Houston Ship Channel pilots resumed boarding deep-draft vessels about 3 p.m. local time today after suspending transits for about seven hours because of heavy fog, the U.S. Coast Guard said.

About four ships were waiting to pass through the channel when service resumed, Richard Brahm, a Coast Guard spokesman, said in an interview.

Pilots stopped boardings shortly after 8 a.m., shortly after two ships collided, Brahm said. That accident is under investigation, he said.
