News Release
Saturday, July 30, 2011

CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas –The United States Coast Guard has resumed its normal response posture throughout the Coastal Bend region after Tropical Storm Don swept through the area, Saturday.

Post storm assessments were completed on Saturday morning and no waterway or aids to navigation discrepancies were found. The ports of Brownsville, Corpus Christi and Victoria have been re-opened to commercial traffic and cargo handling operations may be resumed.

 All Coast Guard vessels and aircraft have returned to their normal safety, security and law enforcement patrols and are prepared to respond to any mariners in distress.

“Tropical Storm Don was a great dress rehearsal for the Coast Guard, recreational boaters and maritime industry. Our Coast Guard men and women had an opportunity to exercise our heavy weather plan and confirm that we are ready to support the entire Coastal Bend community if faced with a hurricane. Now that the weather has passed, please remember to properly equip yourself with life preservers, signaling devices, first aid kits and a VHF-FM radio when you take to the water," said Capt. John Pasch, commander of Coast Guard Sector Corpus Christi.
