According to American Shipper:

The ports of Savannah and Brunswick will be closed for operations tomorrow, Sept. 2, 2016, as a result of expected severe weather caused by Hurricane Hermine, which was recently upgraded from a tropical storm to a category 1 hurricane.

Deepwater seaports in the southeastern United States are bracing for expected severe weather tomorrow from Hurricane Hermine. The Georgia Ports Authority (GPA) will close its facilities in Savannah and Brunswick, and the Jacksonville Port Authority may shut down operations at all Jaxport terminals Friday, Sept. 2, 2016, as well. Hurricane Hermine, which the National Weather Service upgraded earlier today from a tropical storm to a category 1 hurricane, is expected to bring with it heavy rains and maximum sustained winds of around 75 miles per hour when it reaches northeast Florida and southern Georgia later tonight, according to the National Weather Service.
