CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — Coast Guard Sector/Air Station Corpus Christi reminds the public and mariners to prepare for the 2019 hurricane season.

The Atlantic hurricane season runs from June 1 to Nov. 30, with the peak occurring between mid-August and late October.

“It is vitally important for you and your family to have a hurricane preparedness plan set in place,” said Capt. Ed Gaynor, commanding officer, Sector/Air Station Corpus Christi. “In addition to ensuring you have survival equipment and procedures in place, it is critical that all boaters pay close attention to the weather both ashore and out at sea, and heed messages and evacuation orders issued by authorities. Coast Guard assets will be active both pre and post storm, but may be unavailable during the storm itself due to heavy weather limitations.”

In preparation for the upcoming hurricane season, the Coast Guard has reviewed and updated its severe weather plan and initiated hurricane season measures to protect Coast Guard assets and personnel. In addition the Coast Guard exercises hurricane and heavy weather contingency plans and trains with state, local, port, and industry partners to ensure the maritime community is ready. It is incumbent upon all mariners to be prepared and remain safe and out of harm’s way during a hurricane.

For boating and waterfront communities, the key to protecting boats from hurricanes or any severe threatening weather is planning, preparation, and timely action.

Develop a plan of action to:

  • Secure your vessel in a marina.
  • If permitted, remove your boat from the threatened area, or take your boat to a previously identified hurricane refuge.
  • Specifically identify and assemble needed equipment and supplies. Keep them together and practice your plan to ensure it works.
