The US Federal Railroad Administration (FRA) has reported that freight shipments of passenger rail cars, coaches and other heavy equipment were damaged by Hurricane Harvey in Texas, Louisiana, Florida and Alabama.
In all, at least 11 shipments were damaged or damaged by the storm, according to the Federal Railroad Safety Board (FRSB).
The shipments included cars, trailers and cargo.
The FRSB said that it was unable to confirm if any of the shipments had been repaired.
According to the FRSD, a shipment of the LEX-L, a large, two-car passenger rail car that was manufactured by General Motors in Mexico, was damaged on September 8 and had to be towed by a private company.
The LEX car is one of the largest passenger rail vehicles in the world and is the largest single vehicle to be delivered to the US.
FRA said that all the cargo in the Lex car was recovered and taken to the railroad’s plant in Jackson, Mississippi.
It said that its investigators were working to determine if any damage occurred to the freight train in the aftermath of the storm.
“The Lex-L shipment was transported to the Jackson, MS facility as a result of a cargo train that suffered a serious derailment on September 10,” the agency said in a statement.
“It is currently being inspected to determine whether the LEx-L train derailed.
The agency is also working with the Federal Emergency Management Agency to determine the extent of damage to the Lx-L vehicle and whether the shipment was damaged in transit.”
The FRA said it would conduct a review of all shipments of the car that had been damaged and “take appropriate corrective action to prevent future damage.”
A shipment of rail cars was damaged by Tropical Storm Harvey on September 15 in Texas.
A cargo train from China was also damaged by Harvey on August 26, according a statement by the FRA.
The damage was the result of the track of the train that was hit by Hurricane Matthew on August 29, the FRCB said.
Harvey’s winds, however, were not strong enough to damage the cars, the agency reported.
Another shipment of freight cars was reportedly damaged by a cargo ship that ran aground on the Texas Gulf Coast in September.
US cargo shipments are not protected under the Federal Hazardous Materials Act, and the FARA states that “any shipment or shipment of hazardous materials to the United States that is transported in a container or in a bulk carrier shall not be subject to Federal or State liability for the contents.”
Harriet, the most powerful hurricane to hit the US in over 40 years, made landfall in Texas on August 25 and is expected to reach the Gulf Coast later on that day.
It’s still not clear if the storm has any impact on US shipping or freight shipments.
