(Reuters) - Norfolk Southern Corp said on Monday it was inspecting track for damages and removing fallen trees along rail lines leading to ports in Florida, Georgia and South Carolina due to the impact of the weakened Hurricane Irma.

A spokeswoman for the No. 4 U.S. railroad said rail traffic to those locations was closed and would re-open once track assessments and repairs were completed.
