US coal terminals affected following Hurricane Florence

Published by

Researched by Industrial Info Resources, the US Mid-Atlantic region has already endured more weather-related devastation than it has seen in years after Hurricane Florence made landfall on the Carolina coast early Friday, and comparisons with Hurricane Harvey's effect on the Texas Gulf Coast last year are multiplying.

But there is at least one major difference: the effect on gas supplies and prices have been minimal, as no refineries have been shuttered due to Florence. But coal terminals, which are more plentiful (and influential) in the area, are another story.

Industrial Info's new Disaster Impact Tracker widget can help you monitor weather-related events to identify industrial plants in the potential impact path of a storm or natural disaster within your PECWeb Dashboard. Utilise the Current Natural Disasters widget to quickly visualise and assess the specific areas of impact, and link directly to the storm within the Disaster Impact Tracker to identify the plants and units potentially requiring disaster relief equipment and services.
