Collision Shuts Ship Channel

A collision involving 2 tankers in the Houston Ship Channel has led to an indefinite shutdown of the port. The collision apparently occurred during a heavy fog, and involved the 50,000-pound tanker Charleston and the 600-foot long cargo vessel Harvest Sun. The tanker vessel was apparently headed northward to Houston, while the cargo vessel was headed southbound from Houston.

According to the Coast Guard, the tanker and the cargo vessel collided at about 8am near the Texas City Dike. There were no injuries in the accident. No fires or explosions were reported, and so far, there have been no reports of any oil or chemical spillage during the accident. The tank was carrying the acetone.
