Nor'easter Impacts East Coast Ports

Posted 03/02/2018

The storm raging against the East Coast today is expected to bring about record wind gusts and flooding. New York and Boston are especially likely to feel the effects of the storm with possible coastal flooding and power outages due to high wind gusts. Long Island and East Boston could get as much as five inches of rain through Saturday, and New York could see twelve to eighteen inches of wet, heavy snow which could increase the risk of power outages. Over 1,500 flights have been cancelled and residents and business along the coast are encouraged to take precautions and travel only when absolutely necessary. The East Coast ports have issued various alerts and notifications regarding cargo operations as seen below: 

Port of Boston - Conley Terminal

Based on the projected sustained wind speeds and potential tidal flooding associated with the coastal storm, Friday, March 2nd, Conley Terminal will be closed.

Port of NY/NJ

Please take precautions to secure loose equipment, highest winds expected between 12PM Friday - 3AM Saturday. Use caution as roadway flooding may occur.

Port of Baltimore

Due to extreme wind conditions, all container operations at Seagirt Marine Terminals have been halted.
