WINTER WEATHER PORT ADVISORY UPDATE

As of 0900 hours this morning, 6-8 inches of snow has accumulated across our terminals in Norfolk, Portsmouth and Newport News.

Another three inches of snow fell at Richmond Marine Terminal. High winds and sub-freezing temperatures are contributing to blowing and drifting snow – a challenging environment for snow removal and service restoration. A blizzard warning remains in effect through 1300 hours today.
