As a result of Hurricane Harvey and the following severe storm, the port of Houston remains closed. Many roads in the surrounding area and adjoining states are closed by floodwater and the main questions as floodwater recedes will be in connection with the damage to the port’s infrastructure, the damage to roads and the availability of staff. Texas and Louisiana are the worst-affected States, with the forecast that local ports will be affected and remain closed for some time. Some shipping lines are diverting vessels to other ports.
