Ingalls: No first shift in Pascagoula, Gulfport


PASCAGOULA, Miss. (AP) — Ingalls Shipbuilding has canceled its first shift for Thursday at its Pascagoula and Gulfport shipyards based on current road conditions and information from local law enforcement officials, the company announced Wednesday.

Officials say the current plan is for second and third shifts to be open on Thursday, but employees are encouraged to call the company's emergency information phone line for any future work schedule changes and updates.

Officials say a decision on the Avondale, La., facility will be made later Wednesday.
