The following is being communicated from Southeastern Freight Lines:
Hurricane watches are in effect for Louisiana and Mississippi as Tropical Storm Ida continues North into the Gulf of Mexico. The most up to date models project this storm to intensify over the weekend into a major category 3 hurricane, which is set to make landfall late Sunday to early Monday. To ensure proper preparation can take place for our people in the path of the storm and the timely positioning of equipment and shipments, the following Service Centers are now embargoed:
- New Orleans, LA (NRL)
- Baton Rouge, LA (BTR)
- Lafayette, LA (LAF)
- Mobile, AL (MOB)
- Orange, TX (OTX)
I have attached a spreadsheet with the impacted zip codes along with a guide on how to handle embargoed shipments. We will continue to monitor the storm and provide updates on our operational status.
Thanks for your understanding and support!
