    Despite weakening to below hurricane strength on Monday, Irma will still bring disruptive weather to much of the eastern United States through Tuesday. Heavy rain and gusty winds left over from this storm will continue to batter parts of the Southeast, while also spreading into the southern Ohio Valley and southern mid-Atlantic by Tuesday afternoon. The heaviest rainfall is expected to inundate northern Georgia, northeastern Alabama, South Carolina and southwestern North Carolina. While some areas could have as much as 8 inches of rain from Irma. Millions of customers are without power across Florida, Alabama, Georgia and South Carolina in Irma’s wake.

    We are currently unable to pick up or deliver shipments serviced by Miami, Orlando and Jacksonville.  These terminals remain closed.

    Please be advised that linehaul, pickups, and deliveries in these areas are all impacted causing delays.

  • Weather 08/28/17:

    Harvey’s downpours will continue over Texas and Louisiana and slowly drift northward through the end of the week, exacerbating the unprecedented flooding disaster that continues to unfold. Communities will be under water for weeks and perhaps a month or more. Power will remain out for several weeks until it is safe for crews to repair the lines. Fifteen to 25 inches of rain fell across a large portion of southeastern Texas as Harvey stalled following landfall. Additional rainfall amounts of a foot or more this week will push levees and drainage systems past their limits. Water may need to be released from reservoirs to release the strain, further inundating some communities.

    At this time we are not making any pickups or deliveries in the Houston area. Roadrunner Houston is closed.
