MARINE SAFETY INFORMATION BULLETIN
[MSIB # 22-11]
August 28, 2011
NOTICE OF HURRICANE SEASONAL ALERT
The Captain of the Port, Sector Delaware Bay, has determined that
Hurricane IRENE has
diminished and poses no further threat to the port. The Port Condition
has been downgraded
from Zulu to a Seasonal Alert. However, the Delaware River will remain
closed to vessel traffic
beginning at the southern point of Biles Island north to Trenton, NJ due
to increased volume of
debris and flooding. This Marine Safety Information Bulletin is an update
to MSIB #21-11 ,
dated August 27, 2011.
Mariners are advised to take caution when transiting the river and bay
due to swift
currents and the increased presence of debris and other hazards to
navigation. It should also be
assumed that all Aids to Navigation are unreliable until the Coast Guard
can conduct verification
of each aid. The Captain of the Port Sector Delaware Bay strongly
encourages mariners of small
recreational vessels and vessels made of non steel material to avoid
transiting the waterway until
tides and debris volwne return to normal levels.
The Coast Guard continues to ask for a collaborative effort from port
members in
reporting any hazardous conditions or breakaway of vessels until port
condition return to normal.
If there are any questions regarding the contents of this bulletin or
expectations of the
Captain of the Port, please contact (215) 271-4807.
