Florence to deepen ferrous scrap transportation woes

By Bill Beck - September 17, 2018

As late summer turns into fall in much of North America, the ferrous scrap community is no doubt focused on the impact that weather can have on logistics networks. Hurricane Florence, which came ashore Friday in North Carolina, has brought with it an astonishing volume of moisture. Now a tropical depression Florence has dumped prodigious amounts of rain on the Carolinas - up to 40 inches in some spots. The storm had taken 14 lives as of Sunday evening, and flooding is expected to plague the Carolinas for weeks. The storm is forecast to take a sharp turn to the northeast early this week, besieging much of the already waterlogged Mid-Atlantic and New England states with heavy rainfall before spinning out to sea.
