Coast Guard prepares for Tropical Storm Elsa at South Florida Ports

The coast guard is preparing for Tropical Storm Elsa at South Florida ports. The Coast Guard Captain of the Port for Key West set port condition Zulu for the Port of Key West due to the expectation of sustained gale force winds of 35 mph and gusts up to 43 mph generated from Tropical Storm Elsa that may arrive within 12 hours. While port condition Zulu is in place no vessels may enter to transit within these ports without permissions of the COTP. All vessel movements are prohibited at this time, and all ship-to-shore operations must cease until further notice.
