On Tuesday, Nicholas was downgraded to a tropical depression. It caused rain, minor flooding and power outages in Texas and Louisiana and continues as a strong storm front along the gulf coast and Florida panhandle.
We continue to monitor the situation closely. Thus far, we have not experienced any impact to our vehicles, drivers, and supplier partners.
