Update from the Port of Oakland and Port-Wide Activity for Wednesday Nov. 2, 2011 as of 10:30 PM
Oakland, Calif.– November 2, 2011 – The Port of Oakland continues to emphasize the paramount importance of everyone's safety and security.
Based upon the most current information we have from the field, we can report that, as of right now, in the Port area, there have been no injuries, no property damage, and no major security problems.
We want to extend our appreciation to Oakland Interim Police Chief Howard Jordan, his officers, and to all of the people who participated in keeping the peace.
However, maritime operations remain effectively shut down, and the Port has been taking steps to help workers in the harbor area get home safely.
Maritime operations will not resume until it is safe and secure to do so.
Our hope is that the work day can resume tomorrow and that Port workers will be allowed to get to their jobs without incident. Continued missed shifts represent economic hardship for maritime workers, truckers, and their families, as well as lost jobs and lost tax revenue for our region.
