Cargill says its Westwego, Louisiana, grain export terminal damaged by Ida

- Global grains trader Cargill Inc CARG.UL on Wednesday said its Westwego, Louisiana, grain export terminal was damaged by Hurricane Ida after confirming more extensive damage at its only other grain export facility in Reserve, Louisiana, earlier in the week.

The company is still assessing the extent of the damage and does not yet know how soon its grain loading and shipping operations at the busiest U.S. grains port may resume, Cargill spokeswoman April Nelson said.
