MIAMI — The Coast Guard continues to reopen ports throughout the southeastern United States following Hurricane Irma.

Below is list of all ports in the Coast Guard’s Seventh District and their current port status

Despite ports being open, mariners are urged to use caution while transiting waters in areas impacted by Hurricane Irma. Following hurricanes and other tropical weather systems aids to navigation are often missing or damaged. Additionally, debris is often swept out to sea from wind and storm surge. Mariners are asked to report any missing or damaged aids to navigation and debris that may pose a danger to safe navigation to the Coast Guard via VHF FM marine radio channel 16 or by contacting the nearest Coast Guard sector.
