“The entire Port community continues to monitor the storm and we have implemented Phase II of our Hurricane Preparedness Plan,” said Gary LaGrange, Port President and CEO. “Phase II includes securing all equipment and facilities and removing any debris that could become a hazard during a tropical storm. We’re prepared and ready for whatever affects may come our way.”

Nine cargo ships are expected to be at Port docks through the weekend, many working cargo until weather conditions dictate otherwise.
