Tropical Storm Ana Closes Hawaii’s Port Allen

Tropical Storm Ana Closes Hawaii's Port AllenPort Allen

The U.S. Coast Guard Captain of the Port has closed Port Allen in Kauai, due to the severe weather of Tropical Storm Ana. The Nawiliwili Port was re-opened on Sunday evening, October 19.

The USCG is advising vessels transiting within the vicinity to seek sheltered waters until storm conditions subside.

Once the storm has passed and the threat of severe weather has subsided, the Coast Guard and State of Hawaii will jointly conduct surveys for channel blockage and prioritize steps to resume essential, then normal, vessel traffic within the port. These steps are to minimize risk of damage to vessels and assess the conditions of channels, aids to navigation, waterfront facilities, piers and other infrastructure.

The COTP, in conjunction with the state DOT-Harbors in Hawaii, will begin sending Port Assessment Teams to accessible areas of the port as soon as it is safe to do so.

“I am committed to reopening the port as soon as it is safe to do so,” said Capt. Shannon Gilreath, the Coast Guard Captain of the Port. “Reconstitution of the port is essential to the flow of goods and services and necessary to repair and recovery efforts of our local communities.”

The conditions of the port will be evaluated and changed dependent on the assessment of the port.
