FedEx suspended Express and Ground services in hundreds of Florida ZIP codes due to hazardous conditions caused by Tropical Storm Nicole, which made landfall along the state's east coast early Thursday morning.
The company said Thursday that Express services were suspended in 801 Florida ZIP codes, while Ground services were halted in 263 ZIP codes. Areas affected include Daytona Beach, Orlando, Vero Beach and West Palm Beach.
For FedEx Freight, the company listed 937 ZIP codes with suspended service on Thursday.
"Delays and disruptions can be expected for inbound and outbound shipments across portions of Florida," FedEx said on its website. "We are committed to providing service to the best of our ability in areas that can be safely accessed."
The large tropical storm was over central Florida on Thursday morning, with strong winds, heavy rains and dangerous storm surge and waves continuing over a large area, according to a National Weather Service bulletin. Daytona Beach recently reported sustained winds of 49 miles per hour with gusts of 70 miles per hour.
"Additional weakening is forecast while Nicole moves over land during the next day or two, and the storm is likely to become a tropical depression over Georgia tonight or early Friday," according to the bulletin.
UPS did not list any service impacts due to Tropical Storm Nicole on its website as of Thursday morning.
“While several facilities had delayed start times this morning, all UPS facilities are providing pickup and delivery service,” a UPS spokesperson said in an email.
FedEx and UPS still haven't fully restored service in areas impacted by Hurricane Ian, which caused destruction in the southwest portion of Florida in late September.
Due to Hurricane Ian, as of Thursday morning, FedEx listed two Florida ZIP codes in which service delays and disruptions could be expected, while UPS had three Florida ZIP codes in which no pickups and deliveries would be made.
