 The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey issued a press release at 6 a.m. Tuesday morning notifying users that all the port authority's maritime facilities would be closed until further notice, because of extensive flooding in the New York area in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, said the release.

The Maryland Port Administration said its public marine terminals in Baltimore would remain closed on Tuesday.

The Virginia Ports Authority, meanwhile, said all state-owned terminals would be open for business on Tuesday but would open at 8 a.m., a two-hour delay from the normal, reported American Shipper. There will also be no vessel operations until a port assessment has been completed by the Coast Guard.

Norfolk Southern railroad said customers from Virginia to New England should expect delays of at least 72 hours, said the release.
