According to the National Hurricane Center, Hurricane Michael is expected to make landfall along Florida’s Northeastern Gulf Coast Wednesday afternoon. Hurricane Michael is now a Category 4 hurricane, with a life-threatening storm surge and over 100 mph winds.
Update from the Norfolk Southern:
• “Currently all of the Norfolk Southern Intermodal facilities are operating under normal hours with no closings planned; however, as Michael nears land it may become necessary to restrict shipments ingating at origin points destined to ports in the Mid-Atlantic and Southeast with terminal closures possible. Norfolk Southern will continue to closely monitor the storm and will provide updates as the storm progresses.”
Update from CSX:
• “CSX Transportation (CSXT) is taking precautions to protect employees, rail traffic and infrastructure as Hurricane Michael approaches the U.S. mainland. Please be advised that intermodal freight traveling between the Florida and Midwest regions should expect delays of 24 to 36 hours as the storm moves through the area and any track obstructions are cleared.”
