Fog plays havoc with city's ports

FOG caused by rainy weather since mid-February has disrupted international shipping services around ports in Shanghai, authorities said yesterday.

About 100 international ships delayed or canceled exit or entry plans at the port areas of Wusong, Waigaoqiao and Yangshan yesterday morning, Shanghai Immigration Frontier Defense General Station said. This is the sixth such disruption this month.

In Zhanghuabang berth near the Wusong Port, visibility was below 200 meters yesterday. The Wusong checkpoint reported more than 40 international ships had canceled entry plans.

The stranded international ships had to moor in the anchorages at the mouth of the Yangtze River. They will not be able to dock until better weather returns, said port authorities.

Shanghai sees more than 2,000 incoming and outgoing ships every day.
