ATA, The American Trucking Association, and the entire trucking industry, is assessing the impact of the devastation caused by Hurricane Katrina on Gulf Coast states. Today, our concerns are what we can do to help save lives; ensure adequate food, water and medical supplies reach hurricane victims; and accelerate recovery effort in parts of Louisiana, Alabama, Mississippi and South Florida. ATA developed a Web page to help motor carriers participate effectively in the national response and assist truckers traveling in the affected areas in the conduct of their day-to-day business. Through a comprehensive set of verified links, visitors can access the latest information on road closures, fuel waivers, relief from hours of service, and other critical developments. New information will be posted as soon as it arrives, so please bookmark this page and check back often. (http://www.truckline.com/katrina).
