CBP Port of Savannah Hurricane Matthew Operations

Release Date: 
October 7, 2016

SAVANNAH, GA. - The Area Port of Savannah is currently closed due to Hurricane Matthew.  Vessel and private aircraft arrival clearance is expected to resume in the afternoon on Sunday but is dependent on the damage caused by Hurricane Matthew.  Additionally, the resumption of vessel traffic in the Savannah River by the U.S. Coast Guard, as well as opening of the Savannah Airport will be a factor.

Commercial trade operations (collections, release/examination of cargo) is expected to resume on Tuesday, October 11 but will be dependent on recovery efforts/issues.

For questions call the Duty Watch Commander Patricia Scull at 912-210-2781 or Assistant Port Director Lynn Brennan at 912-210-0077.
