Update Report: Severe Weather in the Midwest

As mentioned in a Service Advisory on June 12, 2008, BNSF reported service would be impacted by rising water in the Iowa, Nebraska, Illinois and Missouri areas.

We continue to monitor, assess and take proactive measures to maintain fluidity through the BNSF network. Delays will be experienced due to reroutes of non-intermodal trains and the Chicago-Denver intermodal trains. Traffic between Chicago and Denver; and shipments with an origin or destination of Memphis, Tennessee, Atlanta, Georgia, Birmingham, Alabama and St Louis, Missouri may experience delays of 24 to 48 hours.

We will continue to provide you with additional information as it becomes available.

If you have any questions, please contact BNSF Customer Support at 1-888-428-2673, option 4, option 3.
