Coast Guard: No ships to enter Baltimore port ahead of storm
BALTIMORE (AP) — The U.S. Coast Guard won’t allow ships to enter the Port of Baltimore because of high winds expected in a winter storm.
The Maryland Department of Transportation says the Coast Guard won’t allow ships into the Chesapeake Bay from 6 p.m. Wednesday through Friday morning. Truckers on Thursday will be allowed to pick up deliveries from ships that met the deadline and to do other business.
Transportation officials say crews pre-treated and salted the public marine terminals on Wednesday. No cruise ships are scheduled to leave from the Port of Baltimore until Sunday.
This story has been corrected to show that truckers will be allowed into the Port of Baltimore on Thursday to unload already docked ships and to do other business.
