UPDATE #2 – June 13

Tropical Storm Alberto is located about 65 miles south of Cedar Key Forida and is moving towards the northeast around 10 MPH. This general motion is expected to continue until landfall today near midday. Maximum sustained winds are near 65 MPH with higher gusts. The likelihood that Alberto will become a hurricane before landfall is decreasing.

Jacksonville, Florida is predicted to get 40 MPH winds from 11 am today through midnight with possible gusts of 50 MPH around 1 pm.

Sea Gale voyage 24s is at the dock awaiting operations before departure to the Virgin Islands and Eastern Caribbean, as is the Miami voyage 72s which will depart to Puerto Rico. No major delays are expected; however, minor delays are possible depending on how the weather effects cargo operations today.

We continue to monitor the storm and evaluate the possible effects it could have on our operations. Crowley will continue to update you as more information becomes available, and as the track of the storm becomes clearer.
