HEBRON, Ky. — The Anderson Ferry has shut down operations for Sunday during a round of heavy winds that caused barges to come loose on the Ohio River.
The Cincinnati Fire Department helped secure the barges near the ferry ramp so they would not become a hazard.

The ferry will resume operations Monday at 6 a.m.
Because of the Brent Spence Bridge closure earlier this week, the ferry has seen an uptick in traffic as commuters consider alternate routes.
We have had to shut down for today. The wind is just too intense. We’ll be back tomorrow morning @ 6:00am.— Anderson Ferry (@AndersonFerry) November 15, 2020
