US Coast Guard begins reopening ports and waterways following hurricane Beryl

HOUSTON, USA – Following waterway assessments and coordination with federal, state, and local partners, the Captain of the Port (COTP) Houston-Galveston has set Port Condition Recovery, Tuesday, for the ports of Houston, Texas City, Galveston, and Freeport, and the Gulf Intracoastal Waterway from the Colorado Locks east to High Island Bridge.

Specific navigation conditions are summarized in Marine Safety Information Bulletin (MSIB) 21-24. This MSIB supersedes prior MSIBs related to hurricane Berly. Additional guidance regarding Hurricane Beryl will be issued in the form of further MSIBs, Broadcast Notice to Mariners, or other forms as necessary.

US Coast Guard Sector Houston-Galveston continues to work closely with coordinating agencies to include the US Army Corps of Engineers to assess critical waterways.

“This is a positive step towards fully restoring a critical portion of the nation’s Marine Transportation System,” said Capt. Keith Donohue, Commander, US Coast Guard Sector Houston-Galveston. “Our team will continue to work tirelessly to restore the unrestricted flow of commerce through the region.”
