Dorian Upgraded to a Hurricane

At approximately 14:00 AST, Tropical Storm Dorian was upgraded to Hurricane status by the National Weather Service. Hurricane-force winds have been observed near St. Thomas and projections indicate that Dorian has the potential to become a Category 3 hurricane by the time it makes landfall in Florida.

We will continue to monitor the situation, and update accordingly. Clients with ships through Charleston, Savannah, Jacksonville, and Miami show no signs of disruption, and we are working with the Ports to makes sure cargo will be secure if discharged prior to any landfall.
