Hurricane Irma - port and airport updates

National Hurricane Center (NHC) downgraded Irma to a tropical depression Monday night. Irma flooded parts of Jacksonville, Savannah and Charleston yesterday. An estimated 6.6 million people are still without power across the southeastern US, mainly in Florida and Georgia. Due to its size, Irma had a wide ranging impact and supply chains will be severely affected. Fuel and truck shortages are expected.
