Update Report: Hurricane Gustav

As mentioned in the Service Advisory issued on August 28, 2008, Hurricane Gustav is expected to make landfall near the New Orleans and Houston areas early next week. BNSF has closed our New Orleans Intermodal facility as of 12:00 p.m. CT on Friday, August 29, 2008. Also New Orleans traffic has been staging en route.

BNSF Houston (Pearland) Intermodal and Barbour’s Cut facilities will be taking the necessary precautions for any potential weather impact as a result of Gustav. Both facilities will continue to load outbound trains and inbound traffic will be slowed or staged en route. If the situation worsens, BNSF will notify you as soon as possible with any other weather impacts to the region.
