Boeing has evacuated its Charleston, South Carolina 787 Dreamliner assembly line ahead of the potential damage caused by Hurricane Dorian.
The State of South Carolina has also issued a mandatory evacuation order, forcing the Boeing assembly line to suspend operations and to evacuate the site.
Boeing has already evacuated four 787-10 Dreamliners to the manufacturer’s bases in Fort Worth, Belleville, Moses Lake, and Everett.
Boeing has around 8,000 employees based in Charleston and produces 14 787 Dreamliners every month for airlines around the world.
Charleston International Airport will cease operations at 3 p.m. (Wednesday, 9/4). At this time, all airport operations will be suspended. Depending on weather conditions, airport operations are expected to resume on Friday morning.
