Captain of the port reopens port of Baltimore

BALTIMORE— The Port of Baltimore has been returned to the Seasonal Alert port condition and is reopened to all vessel traffic.

Early preparation and communication between federal, state, local, and industry partners helped minimize the potential for damage in the port.

The Coast Guard will continue to broadcast notice to mariners and send out Marine Safety Information Bulletins to notify the maritime community as needed.

All maritime users are requested to monitor the progress of the storm and heed all warnings.

Mariners are advised to exercise caution when transiting restricted waters due to possible shoaling and aids-to-navigation possibly being off station or unreliable.
