Hamilton docks gear up for storm

Importers are being encouraged to collect goods from the Hamilton docks today before the arrival of Hurricane Humberto.

Stevedoring Service Limited said that the MV Somers Isles was being unloaded before it departed later today.

The company said: “SSL will prepare the port for Hurricane Humberto and support customers as they collect their imports from the docks.

“SSL and the port will be closed all day tomorrow to allow staff to make personal preparations for the storm.

“An advisory will be issued on reopening as soon as possible once Hurricane Humberto has passed and conditions have been duly assessed.”

Warren Jones, the chief executive, said that crews had been working since Sunday to unload goods.

He added: “In order to ensure the Oleander and Somers Isles have been fully serviced, the team has not had the opportunity to do any personal preparations.

“We wish to ensure that they have every opportunity to ensure the safety of their own families and property.”

Importers should collect all goods from the docks by 4pm.
