Update: Hurricane Dorian threatens the US

Update: September 3, 2019 - Although it has been downgraded, the storm is expected to remain a perilously powerful hurricane for the next couple of days, with "devastating" winds and a "life-threatening" storm surge, the National Hurricane Center said.

The storm is forecast to travel "dangerously close" to the Florida east coast late Tuesday through Wednesday evening, the center said. It would then move "very near" the Georgia and South Carolina coasts Wednesday night and Thursday, and near or over the North Carolina coast late Thursday, the center added.

Please note, this may impact shipments that are either arriving or departing from the projected trajectory path.

BDP International is actively monitoring the situation surrounding the hurricane and will continue to keep customers apprised of any updates as we receive them. As always, should you have any questions or concerns related to your business, please reach out to your local BDP representative.
