During a Storm - During a hurricane, freight does not move. Whether it is retail or disaster relief efforts, ships are urged to stay in place while the storm is active in the area.
After a Storm - After a hurricane, ships will be assessed to make sure they are seaworthy. Often, ships are used to transport supplies into affected areas. The ability to do this depends on the condition of the port.
