LA PORTE, Texas — Cleanup continues in the Houston Ship Channel after a barge collision Friday spilled chemicals used to make gasoline.
The Unified Command said shorelines are being assessed from air to land. Crews are also going door to door asking homeowners about the impact on their homes.
Twenty-five mobile air monitoring teams are in the field and more than 2,400 air monitoring readings have been taken, according to officials with Unified Command.
As of Sunday, crews are in the first phase of removing the damaged barge. After that is complete, crews will remove the second barge.
The Houston Ship Channel is partially open for outbound travel, officials said.
At this time, it’s too early to know how long the recovery will take.
