  • USCG Hurricane Procedures and Warnings

    Each year around June 1st, the USCG Seventh District publishes detailed information for mariners to heed during a tropical storm event. While these rules and procedures are well known to the savvy sailor, it is good to review before a storm occurs.

    HURRICANE SEASON – JUNE 1st THROUGH NOVEMBER 30th
    Hurricanes can cause excessive damage to vessels and loss of life. To minimize these dangers, the following precautions should be taken by all mariners before getting underway during the hurricane season:
    (a) Instruction of crew and passengers in location of emergency equipment and emergency procedures;
    (b) Pre-sailing check of vessel, machinery, and equipment for seaworthiness;
    (c) Installation of strong ground tackle;
    (d) Review of storm center evasion procedures;
    (e) Knowledge of nearest hurricane shelter or port; and
    (f) Constant radio watches on channel 16 VHF-FM and frequent monitoring of weather broadcasts.
    The civilian hurricane warning service for the North Atlantic is provided by the National Hurricane Center, Miami, Florida. The center collates ship, aircraft, radar, and satellite data to produce and issue tropical cyclone warnings and forecasts for the North Atlantic Ocean, including the Caribbean Sea and the Gulf of Mexico. A Tropical Cyclone Public Advisory (TCP) is issued every six hours, with intermediate bulletins provided as needed. For tropical storms and hurricanes threatening to cross the coast of the U.S., coastal warnings are issued to the public so that precautionary actions, including evacuation, can be initiated to minimize damage and loss of life.
    Four alerts are issued:
    (a) TROPICAL STORM WATCH – An announcement that sustained winds of 34 to 63 knots (39 to 73 mph or 63 to 118 km/hr) are possible within the specified area within 48 hours in association with a tropical, subtropical, or post-tropical cyclone.
    (b) TROPICAL STORM WARNING – An announcement that sustained winds of 34 to 63 knots (39 to 73 mph or 63 to 118 km/hr) are expected somewhere within the specified area within 36 hours in association with a tropical, subtropical, or post-tropical cyclone.
    (c) HURRICANE WATCH – An announcement that sustained winds of 64 knots (74 mph or 119 km/hr) or higher are possible within the specified area in association with a tropical, subtropical, or post-tropical cyclone. Because hurricane preparedness activities become difficult once winds reach tropical storm force, the hurricane watch is issued 48 hours in advance of the anticipated onset of tropical storm force winds.
    (d) HURRICANE WARNING – An announcement that sustained winds of 64 knots (74 mph or 119 km/hr) or higher are expected somewhere within the specified area in association with a tropical, subtropical, or post-tropical cyclone. Because hurricane preparedness activities become difficult once winds reach tropical storm force, the warning is issued 36 hours in advance of the anticipated onset of tropical-storm-force winds.
    The warning can remain in effect when dangerously high water or a combination of dangerously high water and waves continue, even though winds may be less than hurricane force.

    Mariners are reminded that aids to navigation, particularly lighted and unlighted buoys, may be moved from charted position, damaged, destroyed, extinguished, or otherwise deemed discrepant as a result of hurricanes and storms. Mariners should not rely solely upon the position or operation of an aid to navigation, but also employ such other methods of determining position as may be available. Port Hurricane Conditions are set up by the COTP and will change as the threat of severe weather increases, or as a storm approaches a specific COTP Area of Responsibility. For COTP-specific Port Hurricane Conditions, you should review information provided under the Port Directory tab of http://homeport.uscg.mil
    Condition 4 – Hurricane Seasonal Alert. 01 June–30 November; port status: open.
    Condition Whiskey – Sustained Gale Force winds associated with Tropical Cyclone activity are predicted within 72 hours; port status: open.
    Condition X-Ray – Sustained Gale Force winds associated with Tropical Cyclone activity are predicted within 48 hours; port status: open.
    Condition Yankee – Sustained Gale Force winds associated with Tropical Cyclone activity are predicted within 24 hours; port status: restricted; vessel/facility control measures in effect.
    Condition Zulu – Sustained Gale Force winds associated with Tropical Cyclone activity are predicted within 12 hours; port status: closed to all vessel traffic and waterside activities except for activities approved by the COTP.
    Drawbridges along the coast may deviate from normal operating procedures. Drawbridges are authorized to remain closed upon approach of Gale Force winds of 34 knots or greater. Extended closure periods may be authorized up to 8 hours prior to arrival of Gale Force winds to facilitate evacuation of land traffic. Due to the uncertainty of hurricane movements and bridge closures, mariners are urged to seek passage through drawbridges well in advance of the arrival of Gale Force winds.

  • Continued Praise for Brunswick Landing Marina, off AICW Statute Mile 680

    Brunswick Landing Marina, a very popular facility with long term resident cruisers as well as transient cruisers sits well off the direct path of the Waterway, flanking the eastern banks of Academy Creek off Brunswick River, near the heart of downtown Brunswick, Georgia.

    We had the opportunity of staying at Brunswick landing twice during the month of may 2015. The rates are excellent for the services offered, such as low dockage rates, free laundry, clean bathrooms, and loaner bikes. Sherri the dock master has an uncanny ability to remember boats and names, and treats everyone like family. The marina also hosted a mothers day supper and several wine nights for all boaters. The town offers good restaurants, a great hardware store, and friendly courteous people. On our trip home we had the opportunity of having their mechanic (Wayne), work on our boat. He was an exceptional gentleman of character and knowledge and provided reliable repairs at a fair price. Overall we had a wonderful time there and intend to use this marina again.

  • 2015 Hurricane Season Predictions

    In this report from International Business Times, reporter Philip Ross investigates the possibilities of tropical disturbances in the 2015 hurricane season. All of us coast dwellers will just have to keep our fingers and toes crossed!

    Atlantic Hurricane Season Predictions 2015: What’s In Store For Gulf Coast And The Caribbean?

    hurricane-season

    The Caribbean and U.S. Gulf Coast are in for a wet but relatively mild Atlantic hurricane season, the latest federal forecast for 2015 predicts. Cooler Caribbean waters and a strong El Niño mean there probably will be fewer than average hurricanes forming over the Atlantic Ocean this year. But a less active season doesn’t mean the threat of a destructive storm making landfall has evaporated, officials warned.

    “No matter how many pitches Mother Nature throws at us, if just one of those pitches gets through the strike zone, we could be in a lot of trouble,” said National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration chief Kathryn Sullivan Wednesday during a telephone conference with reporters. Sullivan and Joe Nimmich, deputy administrator of the Federal Emergency Management Agency, met with New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu Wednesday at the New Orleans Emergency Operations Center to talk about the season ahead.

    Forecasters expect between six and 11 tropical storms – storms with sustained winds of at least 39 miles per hour – to form off the U.S. Gulf Coast. Sullivan said three to six of those could become hurricanes with sustained winds of at least 111 mph. At least two of those hurricanes could strengthen to a Category 3 or higher, according to Sullivan.

    Forecasters gauged sea surface temperatures, sea level pressure and the likelihood of a significant El Niño over the Pacific Ocean, which tends to suppress hurricane activity in the Atlantic, to make their predictions.

    “We hope for the best and prepare for the worst,” said Landrieu. He added that New Orleans was “much better off today than we were 10 years ago,” when Hurricane Katrina brought disastrous flooding and ferocious winds to Louisiana and Mississippi.

    The 2015 Atlantic hurricane season officially runs from June 1 through Nov. 30, but things kicked off sooner than expected with Subtropical Storm Ana, which slammed parts of the Carolinas earlier this month. The storm packed wind gusts of more than 40 mph and brought coastal flooding around the South Carolina-North Carolina border.

    Officials previously said they expected this year’s hurricane season to be relatively quiet, much like the 2014 season. The total number of tropical storms seen last year was nine, the fewest named storms in the Atlantic basin since 1997. At the same time, the region saw two major hurricanes, one of which was the strongest hurricane to hit the mainland in six years, according to Weather.com. On average, the Caribbean and the Gulf of Mexico witness 12 named tropical storms and six hurricanes a year, including two major hurricanes, between June and November.

    The Pacific side won’t be so quiet, meteorologists said. Predictions for the 2015 Central Pacific hurricane season were released Tuesday, and cyclone activity is expected to be about 70 percent higher than normal, according to the Central Pacific Hurricane Center. There will likely be between five and eight cyclones in the Pacific basin this year.

    Few Atlantic hurricane seasons have compared to the season of 2005, which broke long-standing records and saw one of the most destructive hurricanes in U.S. history. With 28 named storms and 15 hurricanes, including Katrina, the 2005 Atlantic hurricane season was the most active in recorded history and the deadliest since 1928.

    Boats tossed around in a hurricane can hamper a community’s recovery effort, like these boats that floated into streets and power lines after Hurricane Sandy.


    Hurricane Planning? Don’t Let Loose Boats Hamper Recovery Efforts

    FEMA Hurricane Prep Week May 24-30: BoatUS Has Preparation Guides

    ALEXANDRIA, Va., May 26, 2015 – With FEMA’s Hurricane Preparation Week upon us (May 24-30), waterfront towns and boating businesses are learning how to better prepare their local boating community. In the aftermath of 2012’s Superstorm Sandy, orphaned boats littered the streets around Staten Island, New York’s Great Kills Harbor, hindering the clean up and delaying the return of electrical power. Keeping boats better contained in Sandy would have sped recovery efforts on every front. To help do a better job preparing for this hurricane season, Boat Owner’s Association of The United States (BoatUS) has some no-cost, downloadable hurricane prep guides to help boaters, marinas and boat clubs.

    They include:

    Boater’s Guide to Preparing Boats and Marinas for Hurricanes available at www.BoatUS.com/hurricanes/boaterprep is a boater’s guide and has the details on protecting your own boat as well as a marina.
    What Works: A Guide to Preparing Marinas, Yacht Clubs and Boats for Hurricanes available at www.BoatUS.com/hurricanes/ycmarinasprep is a resource for marina and boat club staff, community resiliency managers and local government that focuses on preparing boating facilities.
    Local emergency managers, marina or club fleet operators can also download at BoatUS.com/hurricanes a sampling of marina hurricane preparation plans to see how their local marinas compare, learn about the value of strapping down boats stored ashore, and view features on why some marinas fare better than others. If a storm approaches, the website also offers up-to-the-minute storm tracking tools with live satellite images, as well as checklists for what to do before and after a hurricane strikes.

    Much of the information comes from BoatUS and its Marine Insurance Catastrophe Team, which over the course of 30 years has seen first hand how better storm preparation can keep boats from drifting away and reduce damage. Go to BoatUS.com/hurricanes for more.

  • Destroyed Lighted Marker in Clearwater Pass, near GICW Statute Mile 135, May 26, 2015

    As Skipper Holtzberg relates, this destroyed marker is the southeast corner of a dogleg to the channel to Clearwater Marina to the north, as well as the south side of the channel connecting the Pass to the Gulf Waterway. An earlier Navigation Alert details shoaling in the marina channel just to the north of the dogleg, see http://cruisersnet.net/?p=87733. Our thanks to Skipper Holtzberg for submitting this Alert!

    Good morning,
    Just passed through Clearwater Pass yesterday and discovered Fl R 2.5s 16ft 5M “14” just east of Clearwater Bridge destroyed to a pile of steel sticking out of water approximately 1 foot refer to Chart 11411 Tampa Bay to Port Richey. At high tide it maybe covered. The key thing here is the mark is normally a flashing red mark to notify mariners of the channel turn at night. The Coast Guard has not marked the obstruction. Or provided a lighted nun buoy in it’s place.
    Sincerely,
    Marc Holtzberg
