Hurricane Beryl: Houston and Galveston ports closed

Hurricane Beryl made landfall in Texas on Monday causing widespread flooding, debris and power outages.

Port Houston said that after conducting preliminary assessments of its facilities, power, and systems, all terminals would remain closed on Tuesday 9 July.

As work continues to repair damage the port said it would update by 4pm local time on 9 July whether disruptions to operations would continue on Wednesday 10 July.

Texas state and local officials warned it could take several days to restore power after Beryl came ashore as a Category 1 hurricane and toppled 10 transmission lines and knocked down trees that took down power lines.
