Another Texas port closed as Tropical Storm Beta makes landfall

Beta made landfall along the central Texas coast overnight. As of early Tuesday, it was centered just east of Victoria, Texas, producing sustained winds of 40 mph.

Monday afternoon, the U.S. Coast Guard placed the Port of Corpus Christi under port condition Zulu. This means inbound and outbound traffic has been suspended. The ports of Houston, Texas City, Victoria, Freeport and Galveston remain under port condition Zulu.

Loading and unloading of cargo, in addition to vessel movement within these ports, may also be restricted. This is up to each captain of the port (COTP).
