Bad weather keeps megaloads stationary in Idaho

BOISE, Idaho (AP) -- Two gigantic loads of oil production equipment headed for Montana remained stationary in Idaho on Friday for a second consecutive day.

Idaho State Police say one of the shipments is parked on U.S. Highway 20 east of Arco. The other is parked on State Highway 93 at Lost Trail Pass about 10 miles from the Montana border.

The shipments being moved by Omega Morgan are bound for the Kearl oil sands of Alberta in Canada.

Bad weather has halted progress, as have permit problems in Montana.
