Petrochemical Disaster Still Hampering Efforts To Clear Houston Shipping Bottleneck

The backlog of vessels waiting to move through the Houston Ship Channel grew on Monday, the U.S. Coast Guard said.

The area remained closed to traffic for a third day as emergency workers attempted to clear a petrochemical spill from the Intercontinental Terminals storage facility.

Thirty-one vessels waited to enter the busiest U.S. oil port on Monday, while another 31 waited to leave, up from 26, respectively, on Sunday morning.
