FACT:

High winds and water during the passage of a hurricane or tropical storm can cause the release of normally secure pollutants into the environment. Hurricane conditions can damage or sink boats that would spill or vent fuel, oils and other chemicals. Your boat can be damaged by storm conditions resulting in the release of fuel, oils and chemicals.

GOAL:

Upon approach of a tropical storm or hurricane, to the extent possible, remove sources of pollution from areas that may be affected by the storm.

 ACTIONS YOU CAN TAKE:

  • When it is safe move boats inland or out of slips to open or protected waters.

  • If you plan to move your boat, check to make sure bridges are still open.

  • If time permits, boats need to be secured with fenders.

  • Remove portable Marine Sanitation Devices.

  • Remove portable containers and cans of paint, petrochemicals and cleaners from the boat and affected areas.

  • Ask your marina for a hurricane preparedness plan.
