To Our Customers,
We are currently monitoring Hurricane Delta in the Caribbean Sea. Delta is expected to make landfall along the Gulf Coast sometime between Friday afternoon and Saturday morning.
In preparation for landfall, the City of New Orleans will begin to close flood gates early on Wednesday, October 7. The gate closures will effectively prevent interchange with eastern rail carriers until further notice; interchange traffic is expected to cease beginning at midnight tonight.
We are making preparations along our network to ensure any potential outages are addressed and repaired as quickly as possible. To ensure you are properly prepared, please visit our Hurricane Planning and Recovery
web page, which outlines best practices to follow during the hurricane season.
As conditions develop, we will continue to provide updates. If you have any questions in the meantime, please contact Customer Care & Support at 800-272-8777 or your Union Pacific representative.
