Due to extremely heavy fog causing low visibility on Wednesday night, ferry services on the Qiongzhou Strait were canceled. This meant that the thousands of cars, coaches, buses and lorries that needed to use the service were stuck. And the number of people waiting in or outside of the three
Haikou ports just built up until there was heavy traffic.
