According to MANA, “All vessels will be prohibited from entering or departing Chesapeake Bay.
Due to the anticipated conditions, the USCG said it may be difficult for its units to get underway to assist distressed mariners.
“There is a real danger to all vessels on the water,” Capt. Rick Wester, captain of the port, pointed out.
“The combination of very strong winds, cold temperatures, rough seas and poor visibility all make for very hazardous conditions, and I strongly recommend that mariners stay in port,” Wester added.
