Fog halts Yangtze shipping

2 May 2012
Heavy fog has caused a major disruption to shipping in the middle reaches of the Yangtze River.

Thick fog began to envelop the Three Gorges Dam region on 28 April and visibility was at one point reduced to less than 50 metres. Traffic in the area was halted for more than 40 hours, according to the Three Gorges Dam Navigation Bureau.

By noon on 30 April, more than 700 ships had been stranded and the fog was showing no signs of dissipating, the bureau said.
