USCG radio communications restored

ADVERTISEMENT

The U.S. Coast Guard announced Thursday morning that its ability to monitor radio traffic offshore in South Florida had been restored after an overnight outage.

The agency had issued an alert to mariners Wednesday evening reporting a loss of USCG radio communication in ports and waterways along the South Florida coast, from Miami north to Fort Pierce. An aircraft was launched to monitor communications while the agency worked on the outage.

The alert from the U.S, Coast Guard 7th District Southeast reminded mariners to check safety equipment, carry a fully charged cell phone and file a float plan with friends or family before getting underway.
