This doesn’t look to be getting better with time. Colonial Pipeline has still been limited on its details or a potential timeline following the cyber attack, but has stated that it “is developing a system restart plan.”
“While our mainlines (Lines 1, 2, 3 and 4) remain offline, some smaller lateral lines between terminals and delivery points are now operational. We are in the process of restoring service to other laterals and will bring our full system back online only when we believe it is safe to do so, and in full compliance with the approval of all federal regulations.”
We’ll see. Until then though, a lot of people are gonna feel the crunch. And with scenes like what I’ve been getting from first person accounts being sent to me, people’s already strained patience is that much thinner.
