Ships Collide in Foggy Hong Kong, Nearly 100 Hurt
Thu Feb 17, 1:37 AM ET

HONG KONG (Reuters) - Nearly 100 people were injured in two separate ship collisions in Hong Kong waters on Thursday during foggy weather.

Ninety-eight people were injured, including three seriously, after a collision between a China-registered catamaran bound for the southern Chinese city of Panyu and a Chinese cargo ship, a spokesman for the marine rescue center said.

Most of the injured were on the catamaran.

Separately, a locally registered cruise liner and a small boat collided, injuring a Hong Kong man.

"The main cause of the crashes was the fog. Visibility was only about 0.5 to two nautical miles," the marine spokesman said.

Most of the injured were sent to hospital.

Hong Kong, one of the world's busiest ports, has been shrouded in fog for weeks.

Ferry firms keen to run Lantau service
Goal to stop illegal sampans servicing drug rehab centre

Elaine Wu and Andy Cheng
21 February 2005
South China Morning Post

At least three ferry operators have expressed interest in operating passenger services between Cheung Chau and a remote drug rehabilitation centre on Lantau Island, the Transport Department has confirmed.

The move is aimed at replacing the present inter-island passenger sampan services, ruled illegal by the Marine Department, which has been cracking down on boat owners.

Expressions of interest - the second time they had been called by the Transport Department - closed on Thursday.

There had been no response to the department's January invitation to run ferry services to and from the Christian Zheng Sheng Association's Chi Ma Wan centre.

The only way to make the 10-minute trip has been by illegal sampans, according to Jacob Lam Hay-sing, chief executive officer of the association's Chi Ma Wan centre.

Mr Lam welcomed the development but said it was too early to say whether this would secure the island's transport.

"We still need to see their proposals. If they charge too high a fare, then it will be impractical," said Mr Lam, adding that there were about 100 drug addicts and staff at the centre.

The ride from Chi Ma Wan to Cheung Chau for 20 people by sampan costs a total of $40.

He said the transport was important for the centre because Cheung Chau was the nearest community with supermarkets. The association also had a training centre at Cheung Chau for addicts.

Mr Lam said he was not opposed to the Marine Department's crackdown on the sampan operators but the government should have had an alternative means of transport sorted out beforehand.

A Transport Department spokesman said it would go through the proposals and that there was no timetable as to when the ferry service would start.

Fog strands 200 on ferries
25 February 2005
South China Morning Post

Two ferries with about 200 passengers travelling to the mainland were stranded for hours at sea yesterday because of thick fog.

They eventually were forced to head back to Hong Kong.

They were among 15 travelling between Hong Kong and Guangzhou that had their journeys cancelled or delayed by bad weather. At least 500 passengers are thought to have been affected.

The two ferries operated by Chu Kong Passenger Transport were heading for Pingzhou Port in Nanhai and Lian Hua Shan port near Panyu .

"They should have known before setting off," one passenger said. Another man said: "We virtually did not move after reaching somewhere about half way at 11.30am," he said. "The captain only decided to turn back in the afternoon."

A spokesman for the firm said a complaint would be filed against the relevant mainland departments that had refused them permission to move.

Thick fog causes flight and ferry chaos and collision off Tsing Yi
Klaudia Lee

Thick fog created chaos for air and sea traffic yesterday, with dozens of flights delayed or diverted, ferry services cancelled and a collision in waters off Tsing Yi.

About 30 passengers were aboard the ferry Island Park Two when it collided with an oil barge off the north side of Tsing Yi Island at 7.50am. The ferry's starboard side was slightly dented, but no one was hurt.

It was the third consecutive day visibility in parts of Hong Kong had fallen below 100 metres.

With visibility less than 200 metres at Chek Lap Kok early yesterday, 22 incoming flights were diverted to neighbouring airports, mostly in Taiwan and Manila.

Twenty-three departing flights were delayed.

The Airport Authority said visibility at Chek Lap Kok improved after 10.30am and aircraft movement returned to normal.

The delays came a day after an authority official gloated about the fog-bound Macau airport, describing Chek Lap Kok as an "all-weather" facility.

A Marine Department spokesman said it issued a warning at 5am cautioning vessels to proceed slowly. He added "it's up to individual ferry operators whether to cancel ferry services".

Last Thursday, heavy fog caused two collisions in the city's waters, with 106 people injured.

Eleven mainland ferries operated by Chu Kong Passenger Transport, running between Hong Kong and Pingzhou in Nanhai , Lian Hua Shan in Panyu , and Humen in Dongguan , were cancelled yesterday.

The ferry company estimated that about 400 passengers were affected by the cancellations.

Long queues formed for refunds, with passengers only learning about the cancellations when they arrived at the ticket centre in Sheung Wan. Ferry services to and from Macau and Shekou in Shenzhen were temporarily cancelled yesterday morning but services resumed after 10.30am.

The observatory attributed yesterday's fog to a humid maritime airstream, but expected visibility to improve over the weekend.

A northeast monsoon is going to bring cold, wet conditions to the city. The weather today is expected to be cloudy and misty with rain patches.

Temperatures will range between 15 and 18 degrees Celsius, with fresh to strong easterly winds.

Ferries collide in Hong Kong as fog reduces visibility
March 28, 2005

HONG KONG (AFP) - A high-speed ferry collided with a cargo barge in Hong Kong's busy harbour injuring 15 people as thick fog reduced visibility to just 100 metres, officials said.

The cross-border Chinese ferry carrying 46 passengers collided with the container barge moments after setting off for Nanhai around 9:00 am (0100 GMT).

The vessel limped back to port and the injured -- 10 passengers and five staff -- were taken to hospital for treatment for light injuries, a spokesman for the southern Chinese territory's marine authority told AFP.

TV images showed the collision had crumpled the bow of the ferry and rent a gaping hole in the gunwales of the barge.

In a second incident, one of the city's famous Star ferries collided with a separate barge. There were no injuries or damage reported.

Hong Kong was shrouded in thick fog all Monday morning as a humid airstream from China entered the territory's warm shores.

A poor visibility warning issued by police at midnight forced all shipping in the busy harbour -- which clocks up some 50 large container-ship movements every hour -- to slow to a crawl.
