Coast Guard reopens ports in Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands

SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico – The Coast Guard Sector San Juan Captain of the Port, Capt. Eduardo Pino, reopened and set Port Condition X-RAY at 3 p.m. Tuesday for all the ports in Puerto Rico and the ports of Frederiksted and Christiansted, Saint Croix; Saint Thomas and Saint John, U.S. Virgin Islands.

The port in Limetree Bay, Saint Croix, U.S. Virgin Islands remains closed under Port Condition ZULU until further notice.

Coast Guard Port Assessment Teams aboard Coast Guard vehicles, response boats and MH-65 Dolphin helicopters are aggressively working to reconstitute the remaining port in Saint Croix, U.S. Virgin Islands to safely reopen the navigable waterways as soon as possible.

Ports returning to Port Condition X-RAY in the U.S. Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico may resume all port and maritime operations, including waterfront facility and vessel transits, subject to prudent seamanship and safe work practices. All mariners and facility operators/owners should closely monitor incoming Tropical Storm Fiona since port conditions are subject to change pending changes in the projected track and strength of the weather system.
