Two major container terminals serving the US Gulf Coast expect to be open Friday.

Port
Houston,
which
runs
the
sixth
largest
US
container
port,
is
readying
to
accept
ships
starting
tomorrow,
according
to
a
public
notice.

Port
Houston
operates
two
container
terminals
in
Galveston
Bay,
which
had
been
closed
off
to
shipping
since
Friday
due
to
Hurricane
Harvey.

But
the
US
Coast
Guard
said
earlier
today
that
vessels
up
to
certain
draughts
will
be
allowed
to
start
transiting
the
area.
The
vessels
will
still
need
to
coordinate
with
the
USCG
and
Houston
Pilots.
