After crossing the Florida Peninsula, the center of Ian has emerged into the western Atlantic Ocean. The storm is expected to re-strengthen into a hurricane before making another landfall along the coast of South Carolina. Hurricane warnings have been issued for the entire coast of South Carolina. Life threatening storm surge, damaging hurricane force winds, and flooding are possible
Due to the impact of Hurricane Ian, we will alter our linehaul operations tonight as follows –
- No linehaul into Florida tonight; however, we will run a modified operation intra Florida tonight
- No linehaul into or out of Charleston, SC and Savannah, GA
- Travel ban on I-95 in South Carolina (This will impact the Florence/Wilmington bypass in the morning)
Based on current forecast, we anticipate running meets between Mobile/Atlanta and Florida terminals in the morning.
Update on Florida Terminal Operations.
012 West Palm Beach – Closed
045 Jacksonville – Closed
048 Tampa – Closed
049 Miami – Limited Operation 20-25 drivers
107 Ft Myers- Closed
177 Offshore Services Jacksonville, FL – Closed
The Ft Myers area was greatly impacted by the storm and will probably take some time for the area to get power back on and roads and facilities to get cleaned up and back in operation. There is a good possibility that LH will not run in or out of Florida again tonight. 2.5 million people without power and many of the bridges are shut down. We will keep everyone posted as we get in and evaluate the situation. Hoping that our customers are understanding of the extreme situation and our service in to Florida is obviously going to be impacted. We will keep everyone updated when we get our LH and terminal operations up and running. We are working hard to make that happen as soon as possible. Thanks!
