New York Harbor open to high-priority cargoes Friday

NEW YORK (Reuters) - New York Harbor will be open to high-priority cargo such as fuel shipments on Friday following storm Sandy, the U.S. Coast Guard said, if those cargos have a place to offload.

The key oil-importing hub was closed after the storm due to widespread damage in the area, helping create a fuel shortage in the region. Tanker traffic has been greatly restricted.
