ISS in Port-Typhoon Callout


Inchcape Shipping Services has announced that the US Coast Guard has reported restrictions to port operations at the Port of Saipan after Typhoon Soudelor hit the island.

As a result of the restrictions, the Port of Saipan will accept vessels during daytime hours from Friday August 7, with no docking and undocking before sunrise and after sunset.

Until further notice, port operations for loading and unloading operations will also occur during daytime hours only. The restrictions apply to all types of vessel.

Typhoon Soudelor hit Saipan on Sunday August 2 – the first time a typhoon has hit the island since 1968.

Saipan is the largest of the Northern Mariana Islands in the western Pacific Ocean, a commonwealth of the US.

ISS Guam will continue to monitor developments and keep its clients updated.
