Posted Date: September 1, 2020

To Our Customers,
Service is now restored to our main line network affected by Hurricane Laura (see map below). The following is an update on current conditions:  
  • Union Pacific-owned industry lead tracks in the affected area are expected to return to service by the end of the day today.  
  • Generators will continue to be used throughout the Lake Charles area until commercial power is restored at all locations.
  • Embargoes remain in place for the impacted area. Please see our embargo page for detailed information.
  • Customers with rail shipments moving through the impacted area should still anticipate delays in transit time as we work off the backlog of traffic holding from the hurricane outages. 

If you have any questions, please contact Customer Care & Support at 800-272-8777 or your Union Pacific representative.
