TORRANCE, Calif., Nov. 26 (UPI) -- Honda Motor Co. said it would start production of the 2012 CR-V vehicle in Ohio next week, despite recent disruptions in its production schedule.

Production is set to begin Tuesday at the plant in East Liberty, Ohio, USA Today reported Saturday.

Flooding in Thailand has prompted Honda to adjust production schedules at several U.S. factories, as inventories of parts made in Thailand are decreasing.

Honda has already said it would cut production up to 50 percent at some U.S. plants – an announcement that was later revised to slightly higher expectations. Production is now expected to return to the original schedule by early December.
