Colonial Pipeline continues operations after Hurricane Sally landfall

NEW YORK, Sept 16 (Reuters) - Colonial Pipeline, the largest pipeline in the United States carrying refined products such as gasoline and diesel, was operating normally after Hurricane Sally made landfall on Wednesday, the company said.

The company was in contact with refiners and suppliers during the storm and had implemented disaster preparedness plans as a precaution, it said on Wednesday. Sally crashed into Alabama's Gulf Coast earlier in the day as a Category 2 hurricane and was expected to bring catastrophic flooding to the region.

Colonial connects Gulf Coast refineries with markets across the Southern and Eastern United States through more than 5,500 miles (8,850 km) of its pipeline system, delivering gasoline, diesel, jet fuel and other refined products. (Reporting by Stephanie Kelly; editing by Jonathan Oatis)
