TEXAS CITY, Texas — Engine trouble forced a small plane to land on the hurricane levee near the Texas City Dike on Tuesday afternoon.

The plane landed safely on the eastern slope of Skyline Drive around 2 p.m. No injuries were reported. The plane came to a stop just south of Texas City’s Shoal Point Lighthouse monument.
