HOUSTON, Sept 6 (Reuters) - Buckeye Partners has shut its Yabucoa oil terminal in Puerto Rico ahead of Hurricane Irma and is preparing for the storm at two other marine terminals in Florida and the Bahamas, the company said on Wednesday.

The Yabucoa terminal can store up to 4.6 million barrels of crude and refined products. It also has two docks and one deep water berth.

"Operations will resume as soon as weather conditions are safe to do so," the company said in a statement.
