It was a steady stream of ships leaving Halifax today. Three container ships were finally able to leave after last night's storm kept them in port. The last to go was the container ship OOCL California from Fairview Cove. The 66,046 ton ship, built in 1995, and owned by Orient Overseas Container Line of Hong Kong, left port with the assistance of the tug Atlantic Larch. The sky was very gloomy, but the rough seas had completely subsided inside the harbour, although there was still a swell running outside.
