Fog Idles 10 Houston-Bound Ships, U.S. Coast Guard Reports

March 18 (Bloomberg) -- Fog has idled 10 ships bound for Houston, the largest U.S. petroleum port, the U.S. Coast Guard reported.

Another 12 ships are waiting to depart, Lieutenant David Vihonski, a Coast Guard watch supervisor, said today in a telephone interview. Pilots suspended boardings at 11:15 p.m. local time yesterday because of reduced visibility from dense fog, the Coast Guard said.

A dense fog advisory is in effect until 9 a.m. local time today, according to the National Weather Service.
