CBP Operations in the Mid-Atlantic Remain ‘Open for Business’ During Nor’easter Juno

Release Date: 
January 26, 2015

BALTIMORE— While most individuals along the northeastern United States are bunkering down for Nor’easter Juno, U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officers, agriculture specialists and others will remain on duty to continue inspecting international passengers and cargo as they arrive.

“Customs and Border Protection airport and seaport operations from Central New Jersey through Northern Virginia will be staffed to process international travelers and trade imports before, during and immediately after what is forecast to be a potentially crippling snowstorm,” said Augustine Moore, CBP Director of Field Operations, Baltimore Field Office. “We remain open for business!”

CBP's Baltimore Field Offices manages inspections operations at seaports and airports in Southern New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Delaware, Maryland, Washington, D.C., and Northern Virginia.

In advance of Nor’easter Juno, CBP urges all residents in snow impact areas to heed state and local safety messages.

CBP is taking necessary steps, including:

  • monitoring reports from the National Weather Service;
  • enacting precautions to ensure the safety of all of our personnel;
  • remaining in close coordination with airport and seaport stakeholders to ensure that operations can commence once aircraft and maritime traffic resumes; and
  • remaining in contact with federal, state and local emergency managers and law enforcement.

Despite all these precautions, some international travel may experience weather-related delays, diversions or cancellations. CBP encourages travelers to closely monitor airport and airline websites, local news media, and The Weather Channel for updates on post-Juno operating conditions.

Travelers can also keep up-to-date with the latest CBP travel or trade advisories, and land border and airport wait times at Advisories and Wait Times.
