Hurricane Dorian – Update 4

Sep 05, 2019

 

Hurricane Dorian regained strength yesterday and returned to a Category 3 hurricane. This morning Dorian was 200 miles south-southwest of Wilmington, North Carolina and the storm is expected to continue up the east coast. Dorian still has the potential to be a dangerous storm, and The National Hurricane Center stated, “Life-threatening storm surges and damaging winds are possible over the next two days along a large portion of the Southeast and Mid-Atlantic coasts.”

The Georgia and South Carolina ports have advised they will return to normal operations following Dorian passing. Effective 6:00am Friday, September 6th all origin-facility gates will re-open to shipments billed to Charleston and Savannah. The FEC resumed normal operations this morning and yesterday all origin-gates, with the exception of Atlanta, were re-opened to FEC destinations. Effective 10:00am today the Atlanta ingate will re-open to FEC destinations.
