Following the passage of Winter Storm Helena, the US Coast Guard (USCG), Captain of the Port (COTP), has fully reopened the Port of Virginia to commercial vessel traffic. 

After the winter storm exited the Mid-Atlantic and Hampton Roads Regions, the USCG lifted the restrictions on January 8, 2017.

“The port is back open without restrictions. However, we urge mariners to be cautious of and to report any hazards to navigation following the storm,” Ian King, Lt. of Sector Hampton Roads’ Prevention Department, said.

At the Port of Virginia, terminals experienced snow accumulation between 7-9 inches, in line with forecast expectations, according to the port.

“The Port of Virginia is constantly monitoring conditions on terminal, adjusting our operating plans as necessary,” the port said.

The USCG closed the port at midnight, January 6, 2017.
