Hurricane Sandy Affects NE Terminals: Update #4
10/31/2012 11:43 am
Dear Valued Customer,
The New Jersey & New York Port Authority staff has been on-site today to assess the damages as a result of Hurricane Sandy.
The current status is as follows:
• No electrical power and no time frame for repair
• Channels closed
• Roads covered with debris and traffic signals out of service
• Rail track has been compromised
• Fence lines – widespread disrepair
The Port Authority staff is working to clear roads and is communicating with the container terminal operators and major tenants to coordinate the clean up and reinstatement of service. Only select essential personnel are permitted on port at this time. All non-essential personnel will be denied access by PAPD at port entrances.
These ports will remain closed till further notice.
We have contacted the carries of these local terminals to provide their contingency plans and will provide updates as they become available.
All Philadelphia ports have resumed their regularly scheduled business operations as of today, Wednesday, October 31, 2012.
If you have any questions please contact us at 305-471-8989.
Thank you for your continued support,
