US Coast Guard At Condition X-Ray Due To Hurricane Lee: Today's Updates
"Currently, the Coast Guard Port Condition status for Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands remains at Port Condition X-Ray".
U.S. Coast Guard: SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico - The Coast Guard urges recreational boaters, fishermen and beachgoers, and water sports enthusiasts in Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands, Friday, to exercise caution during the weekend due to deteriorating sea state conditions and dangerous rip currents associated with Hurricane Lee.
National Weather Service advisories are alerting the possibility of life-threatening rip currents and increased sea states during the weekend ranging from 10 to 15 feet affecting the coastal waters of Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
“We are concerned about people and boaters who may underestimate the impacts of this passing storm,” said Capt. José E. Díaz, Coast Guard Sector San Juan commander. “
The increase in projected sea states of 10 to 15 feet severely reduces our ability to respond to maritime distress with the full use of our resources. Make the best decision for you and your loved ones and enjoy a safe weekend, monitor marine weather forecasts and heed National Weather Service advisories.”
