By Lydia Mulvany and Sheela Tobben (Bloomberg) — The Port of Wilmington in North Carolina remains shut in the aftermath of Hurricane Florence, freezing shipments of everything from fertilizer to textiles.

Florence dropped as much as 40 inches (102 centimeters) of rain in some places as it passed over Wilmington on its way through North and South Carolina. Several major surrounding highways were flooded, limiting access to the coastal city and the port. The port said Tuesday that it plans to start receiving vessels at the end of the week and resume truck operations on Sept. 24.

A 2014 study showed that goods moving through Wilmington contributed about $12.9 billion annually to North Carolina’s economy, while directly and indirectly supporting 73,000 jobs. In 2016, the Port received nearly 1,500 ships totaling 5.4 million short tons of cargo. The biggest products it handles include nitrogenous fertilizer, pulp and waste paper, textile products, wheat and gasoline, which account for about one-third of the total.

There are “a number of very large companies down there impacted,” said John Loyack, vice president of global business services for the Economic Development Partnership of North Carolina.
