Sumary of Louisiana Grain Terminal Reopens After Hurricane Ida as Nicholas Rains Arrive:
- Heavy rains from Nicholas lashed storm-battered Louisiana again on Tuesday after coming ashore on the Texas Gulf Coast, bringing the threat of floods and more power outages.
- The storm was expected to move over Louisiana, Mississippi and the Florida panhandle through Thursday.
- Power was finally restored to Cargill’s heavily damaged terminal in Reserve, Louisiana, on Monday for the first time since Ida, but the company is still assessing damages from that storm and developing “phased reopening plans,” Cargill spokeswoman April Nelson said.
- Cargill is monitoring rains from Nicholas on Tuesday, but it has not confirmed any impact on recovery efforts, Nelson said.
- Rival exporters Louis Dreyfus Co and Archer-Daniels-Midland Co have been loading export shipments for several days, while a facility owned by Bunge Ltd remains shuttered, according to the companies and shipping sources.
- CHS Inc and Zen-Noh Grain, which also operate large grain terminals near the Louisiana Gulf Coast, did not immediately respond to requests for comment on their recovery efforts.
