    MIAMI — The Emergency Support Function 10 (ESF 10) Florida, a Unified Command consisting of multiple state and federal agencies, has initiated removal efforts prioritizing vessels displaced by Hurricane Irma which are actively polluting or creating a hazard to navigation to traffic in the area. READ MORE!

    The Unified Command consists of U.S. Coast Guard Cmdr. JoAnne Hanson serving as Incident Commander, Mr. Benjamin Franco, Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Incident Commander, Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) Capt. David Schaeffer as State On-Scene Coordinator and Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP) Environmental Administrator Kent Edwards as State On-Scene Coordinator.

    “The expanse of coastline affected by Hurricane Irma is logistically challenging,” said Hanson. “Having partners like the FWC, FDEP and EPA as part of the leadership of this response gives us the local knowledge and resources necessary to form an effective response to this situation.”

    Currently, response teams are conducting assessments of the most affected areas to include the ports and waterways from Jacksonville, Florida to Miami, Key West, and around to St. Petersburg and responding to instances of pollution or released hazardous material as they are reported.

    As the Florida Keys open for tourism on Oct. 1, visitors are encouraged to stay away from vessels displaced as a result of Hurricane Irma. Hundreds of the vessels damaged or sunken as a result of the storm present a hazard to health and safety. Boaters in the areas affected by Hurricane Irma are advised to transit with all due caution and report hazards to the Coast Guard Sector Key West command center at 305-292-8727 or305-292-8729.

    • Vessels removed by citizens: 3
    • A sailboat has been removed near the Fleming Key Bridge.
    • Pollution mitigation continues as vessels determined to be leaking hazardous materials are identified.

    “The assessment portion of our response is ongoing, but we’ve reached a point where we can begin facilitating the removal of vessels in a manner that is both safe for our responders, while having minimal impact on the environment,” said Franco. “As in previous stages of our response, our priority continues to be the well being of our responders and the Florida citizens affected by Hurricane Irma.”

    The ESF 10 is the framework by which federal support is coordinated with state agencies in response to actual or potential oil spills or hazardous material releases. Partner agencies, including National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary are contributing expertise and experience to the assessment efforts.

  • LNM: List of Port Conditions

    united states coast guard

    MIAMI — The Coast Guard continues to reopen ports throughout the southeastern United States following Hurricane Irma.

    Below is list of all ports in the Coast Guard’s Seventh District and their current port status.

    Despite ports being open, mariners are urged to use caution while transiting waters in areas impacted by Hurricane Irma. Following hurricanes and other tropical weather systems aids to navigation are often missing or damaged.  Additionally, debris is often swept out to sea from wind and storm surge.  Mariners are asked to report any missing or damaged aids to navigation and debris that may pose a danger to safe navigation to the Coast Guard via VHF FM marine radio channel 16 or by contacting the nearest Coast Guard sector.

    JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — Effective 8 p.m. Saturday, the Coast Guard Captain of the Port (COTP) set port condition Zulu for the Port of Jacksonville and Fernandina and all other terminals and facilities due to the expectation of sustained gale force winds of generated by Hurricane Irma that may arrive within 12 hours.

  • LNM: Coast Guard closes Port Canaveral

    Coast Guard sets port condition Zulu, closes Port Canaveral

    JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — Effective 10 a.m. Saturday, the Coast Guard Captain of the Port (COTP) set port condition Zulu for Port Canaveral and all other terminals and facilities due to the expectation of sustained gale force winds of generated by Hurricane Irma that may arrive within 12 hours.

    Sustained winds between 39 and 54 mph are possible within 12 hours. Mariners are reminded there are no safe havens in these facilities, and ports are safest when the inventory of vessels is at a minimum.

    While port condition Zulu is in place no vessels may enter or transit within these ports without permission of the COTP. All vessel movements are prohibited at this time, and all ship-to-shore operations must cease.

  • LNM: Coast Guard sets port condition Zulu for South Florida Ports

    Coast Guard sets port condition Zulu for South Florida Ports 

    MIAMI – Effective 8 a.m. Saturday, the Coast Guard captain of the port (COTP) set port condition Zulu for Port Miami, Miami River, Port Everglades, Port of Palm Beach, Port of Fort Pierce and all other South Florida terminals and facilities due to the expectation of sustained gale force winds of 25 mph and gusts up to 40 mph generated by Hurricane Irma that may arrive within 12 hours

    READ MORE!

    Sustained winds between 39 and 54 mph are possible within 12 hours. Mariners are reminded there are no safe havens in these facilities, and ports are safest when the inventory of vessels is at a minimum.

    While port condition Zulu is in place no vessels may enter or transit within these ports without permission of the COTP. All vessel movements are prohibited at this time, and all ship-to-shore operations must cease.

    The Coast Guard is warning the public of these important safety messages:

    • Stay off the water.  The Coast Guard’s search and rescue capabilities degrade as storm conditions strengthen.  This means help could be delayed.  Boaters should heed weather watches, warnings and small craft advisories.
    • Evacuate as necessary.  If mandatory evacuations are set for an area, the public should evacuate without delay.  Coast Guard personnel and other emergency responders may not be able to evacuate or rescue those in danger during the storm. 
    • Secure belongings.  Owners of large boats are urged to move their vessels to inland marinas where they will be less vulnerable to breaking free of their moorings or to sustaining damage. Trailerable boats should be pulled from the water and stored in a place that is not prone to flooding.  Those who are leaving their boats in the water are reminded to update your Emergency Position Indicating Radio Beacon (EPIRB) registration, and secure them safely to your vessel prior to a major storm. These devices often float free from vessels in marinas or at docks during hurricanes and signal a distress when there is none. They can also break free and would require valuable search and rescue resources be diverted to ensure people are not in distress.
    • Stay clear of beaches. Wave heights and currents typically increase before a storm makes landfall. Even the best swimmers can fall victim to the strong waves and rip currents caused by hurricanes.  Swimmers should stay clear of beaches until local lifeguards and law enforcement officials say the water is safe.
    • Be prepared. Area residents should be prepared by developing a family plan, creating a disaster supply kit, having a place to go, securing their home and having a plan for pets. Information can be found at the National Hurricane Center’s webpage.
    • Stay informed. The public should monitor the progress and strength of the storm through local television, radio and Internet. Boaters can monitor its progress on VHF radio channel 16. Information can also be obtained on small craft advisories and warnings on VHF radio channel 16.

     

    For information on Hurricane Irma progress and hurricane preparedness, please visit the National Hurricane Center’s webpage.

     

  • LNM: Emergency Phone Line for Miami Mariners

    Coast Guard establishes Miami area emergency phone line for mariners

    MIAMI — The Coast Guard has established an emergency phone line for mariners in life-threatening situations in preparation for the anticipated loss of marine radio transmissions due to Hurricane Irma.  

    Mariners in need of emergency assistance are urged to contact 911 first.  If 911 service is unavailable, please contact (305) 953-4617 to reach the Coast Guard Sector Miami incident command post.

    It is important to note this number is only for life-threatening maritime emergencies in the south Florida area.  Coast Guard response capabilities may be severely degraded or delayed due to severe weather as Hurricane Irma passes through the area. 

    Mariners are strongly discouraged from requesting life-saving assistance through social media.  Coast Guard access to social media feeds may be severely limited due to the effects of the storm.

    The Coast Guard urges mariners to seek safe shelter at this time, as severe weather is expected to begin impacting the area within the next 24 hours.

    Coast Guard, partner agencies to establish security zones near Palm Beach Read

    MIAMI – The Coast Guard is scheduled to establish security zones in the Intracoastal Waterway and offshore near Palm Beach.

    The security zones are scheduled to begin at 12 p.m. Thursday, and will continue until 11:59 p.m. Monday, to include certain waters of the Lake Worth Lagoon, Intracoastal Waterways and the Atlantic Ocean in the vicinity of Mar-a-Lago Club and the Southern Boulevard Bridge in Palm Beach.

    The security zone is necessary to protect the VIP and accompanying official party, the public, and the surrounding waterway from terrorist acts, sabotage or other subversive acts, accidents, or other causes of a similar nature. Entering, stopping, or anchoring in this security zone is prohibited unless authorized by the Captain of the Port Miami or a designated representative. The security zone will be broken into three zones.

    Palm Beach security zone restrictions:

    Zone (1): This zone is always in effect.
