Please be advised that June 1, signals the start of the 2015 Hurricane Season. This is a good time for everyone to evaluate and update your Hurricane and business continuity plans. All tenants are reminded to:

  1. Conduct a survey of leased areas to determine what actions are necessary to minimize property damage and operational interruptions;

  3. Ensure that appropriate emergency supplies (sand bags, plastic sheeting, masking tape, plywood, etc.) are in stock and available in the event of a storm; and,

The Port Authority will communicate weather related information that may affect the port to our tenants throughout the hurricane season.
