Hurricane Sally - Update

Sep 16, 2020


Hurricane Sally has made landfall over the southern coast of Alabama.  The Flood Protection Authority advised Norfolk Southern the floodgates that impede the flow of NS rail traffic into and out of New Orleans will begin to reopen at 800am today, September 16th, with normal operations resuming as all gates open over the next 24 hours.  The New Orleans Intermodal facility has reopened effective 800am.  Customers should expect 48-72 hour availability delays as operations return to normal in New Orleans.

Norfolk Southern will continue to closely monitor the storm and provide updates as necessary.

We encourage drivers to take advantage of our ExpressNSTM Mobile Application which streamlines gate and terminal processes for our drayage community.
