From Week 44 of the District Five (Pennsylvania to North Carolina) Local Notices to Mariners:
Mariners are advised that the aids to navigation in all Fifth District waters and coastal areas should be considered unreliable due to Hurricane Sandy and the associated rainfall, wind driven storm surge and extreme high tides. Aids to navigation may be missing, damaged, off station or displaying improper characteristics. In addition, mariners may encounter shoaling, obstructed waterways, floating and submerged debris and abnormal currents. Report any navigation outages or hazards to navigation to the nearest Coast Guard unit or to the U.S. Coast Guard Navigation Center website at http://www.navcen.uscg.gov.
