USCG gives preliminary timeline for ship transits, but damage assessments still being done.

The
US
Coast
Guard
hopes
to
ease
restrictions
within
Houston
port
today,
but
big
vessels
may
not
move
until
later
in
the
week.

The
agency
expects
to
allow
“limited
vessel
movements
within
the
port.”
But
deep-water
ship
traffic
“may
not
start
moving
until
Thursday
or
possibly
later,”
according
to
a
conference
call
the
agency
had
regarding
shipping
conditions.

Vessels
are
still
restricted
from
moving
with
the
port
of
Houston
without
permission
of
the
USCG
Captain
of
the
Port.
