CBP Boston Prepares for Winter Storm Nemo

Release Date: 
February 8, 2013

BOSTON—All ports in the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) Boston Field Office stand ready to facilitate international trade and travel as Nemo, a major winter storm, approaches New England.

CBP personnel have taken necessary steps to prepare for the storm, which is expected to last through Saturday. The National Weather Service has issued a Blizzard and Coastal Flood Watch for communities throughout New England.

All ports in the Boston Field Office will be available for and continue to work with our port partners, trade and travel stakeholders, airport and seaport authorities, and other federal and state agencies, to expeditiously clear international arriving passengers during and after extreme weather events.

CBP urges the public to remain engaged with Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and their state Emergency Management Agencies for safety messages and disaster assistance, if needed.

Airline and cruise ship passengers are encouraged to check their carrier's website or travel agents for more information.

Travelers may monitor Border Wait Times for various ports of entry on the CBP website, and are encouraged to build extra time into trips during inclement weather, and/or periods of exceptionally heavy traffic.
