Coast Guard removes safety zone in San Juan Harbor

SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico – The Captain of the Port San Juan removed the Safety Zone for the entrance to San Juan Harbor Wednesday morning due to improved sea conditions along the north coast of Puerto Rico.

The safety zone was established due to heavy surf along the north coast of Puerto Rico. No vessels were allowed to enter or depart the port of San Juan without the permission of the Captain of the Port.

Although the Safety Zone has been removed, the National Weather Service High Surf Advisory will remain in effect until 6p.m. Wednesday evening. All vessel and facility operators, especially recreational boaters and swimmers, should continue to monitor this situation and not take undue risks.
