Hurricane Maria Update #2
This morning Puerto Rico and Virgin Islands are bracing for a potentially devastating direct impact of Hurricane Maria. Hurricane watches and warnings are already in effect for islands reaching from St. Lucia to the Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico. Our thoughts and prayers are with the people of Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands, our employees, colleagues, business partners and friends as they prepare for Hurricane Maria.
Based on current projections, our southbound vessel departures from Jacksonville this week remain on schedule. Detailed voyage and gate schedules can be found below, we will continue to provide updates throughout the week or as conditions change.
San Juan Terminal:
Army Terminal remains open at this time and will remain open until 1700 this evening and will remain closed for the duration of the storm to allow employees time to prepare for the storm. We ask if possible to remove any cargo from the terminal today prior to closing. PRT Terminal (Intership) is remaining open today and tomorrow, September 18 and 19, 2017 for dispatch only. Beginning tomorrow morning phones for PR offices and terminals will be diverted to Jacksonville, FL for handling.
