Trans Environmental Hurricane Irene Closure Scheduled

Based upon the projected path of Hurricane Irene, Transport Environmental Systems, Inc. is implementing its emergency weather plan.

PRLog - Aug. 25, 2011 - MOREHEAD CITY, N.C. -- Transport Environmental Systems, Inc. is preparing for the landfall of Hurricane Irene. The hurricane is expected to pass to the east of Morehead City. Building codes call for structures to be able to withstand sustained winds of 110 MPH. We are planning for high winds, loss of power and potable water.

Mark Jensen, President of Transport Environmental Systems, Inc., said, “As Hurricane Irene's intensity builds to a category 4, its impact is not totally predictable. Exercising caution, we have scheduled our closing from Friday, August 26, through Monday, August 28.”

We are continuing to observe Hurricane Irene's approach to the Crystal Coast, and preparing for a possible Saturday landfall.

Trans Environmental will monitor Irene’s progress and will post updates via Twitter at http://twitter.com/transenvsys. Dr. Jensen stated, "We will re-evaluate our scheduled re-opening on Monday based upon the conditions, as well as, the recommendations of the Carteret County Emergency Services Department, http://www.carteretcountygov.org/emergencyservices.aspx."
