Hurricane Dorian to shut U.S. ports, disrupting intermodal cargo movement
Hurricane Dorian’s approach upward along the U.S. Southeast coast will shutter maritime and rail assets throughout the region during the week.- According to the article from the freightwaves.com and its author Michael Angell, Bulk and Intermodal Editor
Dorian was located just 100 miles off the Florida coast as of Monday evening, according to the National Hurricane Center, and was stationary just off Freeport, Bahamas. It slowed down but still had wind speeds up to 140 miles per hour.
Miami’s port remains closed since Saturday due to Dorian. With its track set to head northward, other ports along Florida’s coast plan to close.
On Tuesday, the U.S. Coast Guard will close the ports of Jacksonville and Fernandina to all vessel traffic, after earlier closing Canaveral port to all vessel traffic.- Angell also wrote in his article.
