2016-11-23

Crowley’s corporate emergency management team is monitoring Tropical Storm Otto and taking appropriate steps to ensure the safety of any Crowley personnel, including vessel crews, assets, and your cargo, that may be in the storm’s path. As we continue monitoring the storm, we will update you on impacts to our schedules, operations or facilities.

According to the latest weather projection by StormGeo, Otto is now forecast to be a strong tropical storm with 70 mph winds when it reaches southern Nicaragua tomorrow. The main threat from Otto will be heavy rainfall across Nicaragua and Costa Rica over the next 24-36 hours. Once in the East Pacific on Friday, Otto should steadily weaken to a remnant low over the weekend.

Import loads into Puerto Limon, CR may be delayed up to 24 hours. There is no anticipated delay to the exports sailing at this time. We will continue monitoring the storm and will update you accordingly. We will also continue to post changes to our sailing schedule online which we encourage you to visit at Crowley.com.
