The BOC Blast 181 – Port of Boston/Conley Terminal and Ports of New York/New Jersey all container terminals will be closed today due to weather
The Port of New York and New Jersey will close Thursday and other ports across the US Northeast say they will closely watch the progression of a fierce winter storm expected to dump six inches of snow in the region.
The operators of New York’s six marine terminals announced Wednesday morning their decision to close, and some chassis and container pools said they will as well. Baltimore said Wednesday afternoon that no decision to close has yet been made.
Officials at the Port of Boston were not available for comment.
Baltimore is on the edge of what forecasters say will be the area affected by the storm, which stretches north
up the East Coast to Bar Harbor, Maine. Baltimore is expected to get one to three inches of snow, and New York and Philadelphia could see five inches to eight inches, according to Weather.com. Boston may get
eight inches to 12 inches, the weather news
