With parts of Houston and the surrounding area impacted by major flooding caused by Tropical Depression Imelda, BNSF has reduced operations at its Houston (Pearland) Intermodal and Automotive Facilities. Each facility remains open but with limited personnel as many roadways remain impassable due to high water.
As heavy rain continues to fall and impacts from the flooding are still being assessed, customers should expect train departure delays of up to 24 hours or more. Normal operations will resume as quickly as conditions allow.
If you or your dray carriers require assistance with critical shipments during this period, please contact BNSF Customer Support at 1-888-428-2673.
We will continue to provide further updates, including notice of when facility operations in the area return to normal.
