NC Ports to begin the recovery process

North Carolina Ports officials continue to assess the damage and begin the recovery process at the Port of Wilmington and the Port of Morehead City. Initial assessments indicate damage at both locations to warehouse and other structures, as well as a significant number of downed empty containers to be cleared. All major infrastructure, including gantry cranes, at both locations have been assessed and weathered the storm with no damage.
NC Ports continue to work with local, state and federal officials to determine when it is safe to resume landside operations. At this time NC Ports plans to resume full commercial truck operations in Wilmington and Morehead City on Monday, September 24. Vessel operations are anticipated to commence by the end of this week in both locations and NC Ports will coordinate directly with vessel operators and agents.
Both the Ports of Wilmington and Morehead City will reopen to employees on Thursday, September 20.
