Honda says parts shortages from flooding in Thailand have forced it to cut car and truck production by 50 percent in the U.S. and Canada.

The company says the cutback will run at least through Nov. 10 as it tries to find other sources for parts made in Thailand.

Honda Motor Co. also says it will stop all production in the U.S. and Canada on Nov. 11, and all Saturday overtime work will be canceled through November.

The company says the December sale date for a new version of the popular CR-V crossover vehicle could be delayed by several weeks.

Honda was just starting to recover from parts shortages from the Japanese earthquake and tsunami in March. The shortages caused
dealers to run short of many Honda models during the summer and
early fall.
