Port Of Miami Shut Down, All Traffic Blocked With Stranded Cruise Ships

A vessel that sunk after a fatal collision with the Fisher Island ferry blocks cruise ships from entering the Port of Miami Florida for over 10 hours on Sunday. Three massive cruise ships carrying thousands of passengers each and two container ships were denied entry until salvage crews could locate and remove the sunken vessel from the Government Cut near buoy 18. The salvage crews were further impeded by heavy thunderstorms but eventually cleared the channel so ships could enter by mid afternoon, 10 hours behind schedule. No audio.
