Please see below Hurricane Ida updates from our Saia rep:
Operational update as I have it.
Unfortunately, I have to add in the Northeast impact
Newark– only got 8 pups last night. Our entrance way to the terminal is flooded. Limited at best.
Operations from Baltimore to NYC will be challenged. Philadelphia metro continues to flood. Cresting is not expected until late today or tomorrow. Capabilities will change as a result.
More info on the Northeast/Mid Atlantic terminals to follow
Baton Rouge– Will be getting their first IB pups sometime today since IDA
Houma– The hurricane pretty much ripped every dock door off, but will likely start running next week.
New Orleans– Worst shape of the three. No power and likely will not run anything next week. Looking to have Hattiesburg, Gulfport, and Lafayette cover some of the NOL territory
