Boston Not An Option For Ships After Baltimore Disaster

It's not likely that cargo ships diverted from Baltimore will head to Boston as a result of the collapse of the Francis Scott Key Bridge.

A spokesperson for the Massachusetts Port Authority said Boston could handle more cargo, but it's more likely vessels will go to ports in New York, New Jersey and Norfolk, Virginia.

The Massport spokesperson said shipping companies will do what's most efficient and cost effective.

Meantime, federal officials said last night they have opened up an emergency port to essential vessels as the cleanup process gets underway.
