Oil spill update: See what officials are saying

GALVESTON BAY - The effects of an oil spill in Galveston Bay is far reaching.

Emergency officials have shutdown ferryboats and are preventing other boats -- including cruise ships -- from accessing the area. The ship channel was closed between Galveston Island and Bolivar Peninsula, blocking more than 60 vessels. Officials plan to bring in cruise ships on a case by case basis.

Meanwhile, crews have been working for more than 30 hours to clean up the spill.

Officials say there are 24 boats out tonight, skimming oil and 400 workers are now on site, following a collision between a ship and a barge carrying the oil.

Coast Guard officials say they are working as fast as they can to re-open the Houston Ship Channel. However, at this time, they say they do not know when that will happen.
