New England ports are making preparations for the impending arrival of Hurricane Lee. The storm is expected to bring strong winds, heavy rain, and coastal flooding to parts of the region and Atlantic Canada later this week.

Port Condition "Whiskey" Set

The U.S. Coast Guard Captain of the Port, Southeastern New England, has set port condition "whiskey" in anticipation of the storm's impact on Friday evening. While the ports along the coast are currently open, operators are being strongly urged to start implementing storm preparedness measures.

Implications for Fuel Supply

The New England region is home to terminals that regularly receive shipments of refined products from Canada's Irving Oil St. John refinery. However, due to scheduled extended maintenance at the refinery this month, these terminals might be affected by the storm's disruptions.

Heavy Weather Bulletin

The USCG Sector Long Island Sound has issued a heavy weather bulletin, advising both vessels and facilities to make necessary preparations for the anticipated storm conditions.

Increasing Risk of Wind, Flooding, and Rain

According to the National Hurricane Center outlook, there is an escalating risk of wind damage, coastal flooding, and heavy rainfall from Hurricane Lee in certain parts of New England and Atlantic Canada. The impacts are projected to begin on Friday and persist throughout the weekend.
