BALTIMORE (AP) — The U.S. Coast Guard won’t allow ships to enter the Port of Baltimore because of high winds expected in a winter storm.

The Maryland Department of Transportation says the Coast Guard won’t allow ships into the Chesapeake Bay from 6 p.m. Wednesday through Friday morning. Truckers on Thursday will be allowed to pick up deliveries from ships that met the deadline and to do other business.

Transportation officials say crews pre-treated and salted the public marine terminals on Wednesday. No cruise ships are scheduled to leave from the Port of Baltimore until Sunday.
