Harvey Hits the Texas Coast and Leaves Extensive Flooding and Destruction in its Path 2017-08-28

After making landfall along the coast of the Gulf of Mexico on Friday, Hurricane Harvey has left a path of devastation and almost unprecedented flooding in its wake.
 
While Harvey has weakened and was downgraded from a Category 4 Hurricane to a tropical storm, it has lingered in the area of Houston, Texas and is expected to deposit up to 60 inches (150 Cms.) of rain there before it moves on through North Texas, Louisiana and Arkansas later this week.
 
Roadways are inundated throughout the area.
 
Most businesses in the region are closed as people continue to scramble to safety.
 
Read more about the impact of this storm here on BBC.com.
 
Houston and Galveston, Texas are major hubs for the shipping and petrochemical industries.
 
The national operations centre COSCO (one of Milgram’s principal steamship lines) happens to be located in Houston. That carrier has implemented their business continuity plan and have many employees working remotely. Still they expect there to be delays in processing shipments for Canadian and American customers throughout this crisis.
 
Please read more about COSCO’s assessment in their attached bulletin.
 
Milgram will continue to monitor the situation and will extend our best efforts to mitigate any resulting cargo delays.
