Tropical Weather Update
September 15, 2020
The path of Hurricane Sally continues to shift eastward, we are no longer under a hurricane warning, however, we continue to stay prepared. As of the 10AM CST National Weather Service update, expected landfall is near the MS/AL border early Wednesday AM.
We can report that our operations have been minimally impacted from the Hurricane Sally. The Port of New Orleans area has been able to avoid most of the heavy rain, high wind and storm surge that has accompanied this storm.
