Coast Guard issues cautions for vessels transiting to the Bahamas

MIAMI — For their safety, the Coast Guard advises mariners to not attempt voyages into the Northern Bahamas until further notice due to the devastating effects of Hurricane Dorian.

The Government of the Bahamas is currently assessing its northern ports and harbors to determine if they are safe to enter. There is high risk of debris in the water, sunken vessels, and destroyed or missing aids to navigation and pier facilities.

There is also risk of chemical spills and changes to the topography/hydrology in ports and marinas from the prolonged winds and storm surge of the Category 5 hurricane.
