      COAST GUARD WARNS MARINERS AND BRACES FOR WINTER STORM

      BOSTON - Numerous Coast Guard units throughout New England are pre-staging their crews and equipment today in anticipation of an off-shore storm that is expected to arrived today and generate 17-foot seas and 40-knot winds by Saturday.

      In an effort to inform mariners of the approaching storm, Coast Guard shore units are issuing safety broadcast via VHF/FM radio. Additionally, HU-25 Falcon jets from Air Station Cape Cod are providing storm information to off-shore mariners.

      Coastal and off-shore Coast Guard cutters have also augmented their status to an increased readiness.

      Mariners are encouraged to closely monitor channel 16 VHF/FM for updated storm information. For more marine weather information please visit this link from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.
