Posted Date: August 23, 2017

To Our Customers,

Tropical Depression Harvey is forecast to hit the Gulf Coast as a hurricane by Friday. Forecasts suggest it will bring flooding across Texas and Louisiana.

Delays to rail traffic should be anticipated, especially in areas receiving heavy rainfall. To mitigate service impact, Union Pacific has activated its hurricane response plan, which includes strategically staging resources such as ballast, pumps, locomotives, generators and work crews throughout the affected region.

We will continue to monitor this storm and provide you with additional information if necessary. Please contact the National Customer Service Center or your Union Pacific representative with any questions.
