Hurricane Hanna was a good reminder that we’re entering the peak of what’s forecast to be a busy hurricane season. Fortunately, Galveston Wharves is ready with a comprehensive preparedness and response plan built on years of experience and expertise.

Our first goal is to ensure the safety and welfare of the hundreds of people working on the waterfront and to take steps to protect port property. After the storm, our focus is reopening the port to commerce as soon as safely possible.

Rodger Rees is port director and CEO for the Galveston Wharves.
