Seaboard Marine wishes to advise our valued customers that we are actively monitoring Hurricane Delta. The storm is affecting our operations, and will likely continue to do so throughout this week.
According to the National Hurricane Center, the storm is anticipated to strengthen as it approaches the U.S. Gulf Coast later this week; parts of Texas and Louisiana remain under a Hurricane Watch.
The U.S. Coast Guard imposed modified MSIB condition “Yankee” on the Port of Houston today. At this time, the Jacintoport cargo terminal remains open and is operating normally, although storm preparations have started.
The U.S. Coast Guard also imposed MSIB condition “Yankee” on the Port of New Orleans today. The New Orleans cargo terminal remains open today but will be closed tomorrow in anticipation of the storm’s landfall. Rail operations have ceased until the storm has safely passed.

The M/V AS Petra Voyage 19 northbound, delayed due to weather conditions and port closures, has completed operations in Puerto Cortes, Honduras, and departed for Houston. The vessel is expected to be in Houston Saturday evening, weather permitting.

We appreciate the patience and support of our customers during the 2020 Hurricane Season.
