projections indicate the potential for heavy weather in the coastal and

surrounding areas will experience high winds and increased seas and surf.
All vessels, facilities, marinas are asked to take adequate precautions
and review the Port Hurricane Contingency Plan and storm preparation
checklist dated 23 May 2006. All vessels, facilities, and marinas are
urged to monitor the weather and prepare for any possible impact. There
are currently no restrictions on the Port of Philadelphia. The COTP will

imposed on the zone of the COTP Delaware Bay. This notification will be
broadcasted using VHF-FM radio. The U.S. Coast Guard will provide the best
possible advance notification before changing port operational status.
Ship's agents should ensure their ships are provided a copy of the Port
Hurricane Contingency Plan. Please reference the Storm Preparation
