Seaboard Marine wishes to advise our valued customers that we are actively monitoring Hurricane Delta.
According to the National Hurricane Center, Delta is anticipated to make landfall later today in Louisiana; however, parts of Texas remain under a Hurricane Warning.
The U.S. Coast Guard imposed modified MSIB condition “Yankee” on the Port of Houston yesterday and closed the Houston ship channel last night. At this time, the Jacintoport cargo terminal remains open.
The U.S. Coast Guard also imposed MSIB condition “Yankee” on the Port of New Orleans yesterday. The New Orleans cargo terminal is closed today in anticipation of Delta’s landfall. Rail operations have ceased until the storm has safely passed.
The M/V Patriot Voyage 250 was delayed due to Hurricane Delta. The vessel, though, departed Puerto Cortes, Honduras, this morning and is currently undergoing cargo operations in Santo Tomas, Guatemala. The vessel is expected to arrive in Miami on Monday morning, October 12.
Due to port congestion in Puerto Cortes, Honduras, the M/V Nordbaltic Voyage 37 southbound, sailed to Santo Tomas, Guatemala. The vessel, though, is currently in Puerto Cortes, Honduras, and began working this afternoon.
The M/V AS Petra Voyage 19 northbound, is expected to call Houston late Saturday evening, weather permitting.
The safety of our staff, crews, vessels, and our customer’s cargo is of the utmost importance.
