US Coast Guard news release regarding Tropical Storm Alex.

The Coast Guard is urging the maritime community and boating public to track Tropical Storm Alex’s progress and take early action to protect themselves and their vessels.  Extremely high seas, heavy rains and damaging winds that accompany tropical storms and hurricanes present serious dangers to mariners.

Dangerous weather conditions generated by a hurricane can cover an area hundreds of miles wide.  Even those recreational boaters and the maritime industry that fall outside of the direct path of the storm are advised to be aware of dangerous weather conditions and take appropriate precautions to stay safe and minimize damage.
