A winter storm of historic proportions is expected to hit the Port of New York and New Jersey over the next 36 hours. Total snow accumulation is likely to exceed two feet throughout the port. With the expected gale force winds, drifts could be even higher. All marine terminals anticipate closing today by 3:00 PM, but that time may be adjusted (earlier or later) based on changing weather conditions. Please refer to the individual terminal websites for specific information. All terminals will be closed on Tuesday January 27. A decision about Wednesday will be made by noon tomorrow. Free time will be extended and per diems waived in accordance with the Winter Plan.
