BREVARD COUNTY • PORT CANAVERAL, FLORIDA – Effective at 8 a.m. Monday, Hurricane Condition ZULU is now set in the Port of Canaveral.
No vessel, regardless of size or service, will be allowed to transit through the port, and all commercial vessels over 500 gross tons are prohibited from remaining in the port.
U.S. Coast Guard Captain M.R. Vlaun said most draw bridges will be locked down well before the predicted arrival of sustained gale force winds (above 39 mph), and will not open until after the severe weather has passed.
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.
