Winter Storm Igna unloaded snow and ice from parts of the Florida panhandle to Maine Tuesday, 1/16, and Wednesday, 1/17. The frigid temperatures following behind the snowstorm also caused travel in the South to be all but shut down, including road closures and hundreds of flight cancellations. States of emergency were declared in North Carolina, Georgia, and Alabama.

 

Travel problems also persisted throughout the Plains, Midwest, Texas, Louisiana, and Mississippi as snow and ice linger, due to subfreezing temperatures following the snowfall on January 16.

 

In addition to numerous Post Office closures, logistic partners are anticipating delays of 24 – 72 hours for shipments traveling along the Eastern Seaboard. In addition, facilities in Atlanta, Georgia were temporarily closed due to the extreme conditions, impacting all shipments routed through the facility.
