US Department of Transportation Resources for Hurricane Florence.
Federal Railroad Administration
The FRA Administrator has declared an emergency event pursuant to 49 CFR 211.45 based on the imminent threat posed by Hurricane Florence. The declaration opens the emergency docket and allow railroads to directly upload requests for relief from specific regulations based on the emergency event. The declaration also sets aside notification requirements (Federal Register Announcements and requests for comments) normally used for a waiver so that FRA can expeditiously respond to a waiver request.
