Houston, Galveston, Texas City, & Freeport, TX - Daily Port Update  

 

 

Houston // Open to all vessel traffic   <span-size:10.0pt;font-family:"Arial",sans-serif">

 

A reminder as we enter Fall 2018, strong cold fronts as they arrive the Texas Gulf Coast will generally push out 1 – 3 feet of water out of Galveston Bay.  Maximum deep draft vessels cold be delayed transiting the Houston Ship Channel until the cold front and high pressure move off the coast and water moves back into the bay. 

 

 

 

 

Following from Captain Mitchem / Presiding Officer Houston Pilots

 

Removal of 44' draft restriction in the Houston Ship Channel

 

Hello All:

 

The dredging between buoys 11/12 and 9/10 in Bolivar Roads has been completed.

 

The maximum allowable fresh water draft for Houston is 45’ as of August 1, 2018.

 

Sincerely

Captain Mark Mitchem

Beach Hazards Statement<span-family:"Times New Roman",serif;color:black"> Coastal Hazard Message National Weather Service Houston/Galveston TX 431 AM CDT Sat Oct 13 2018   ...Strong Rip Currents and Potential for Coastal Flooding this Weekend...   .Tide levels along Gulf facing beaches and the western shore of Galveston Bay are about one and a half feet above normal astronomical tides. During high tides today, tide levels may exceed 3.7 feet and coastal flooding will be possible, particularly along highway 87 on the Bolivar Peninsula. Southeast winds should increase late in the day, which will cause higher seas and wave run up. This time frame will have to be monitored for coastal flooding.   TXZ438-131745- /O.NEW.KHGX.CF.A.0002.181013T0931Z-181014T0600Z/ /O.EXT.KHGX.BH.S.0008.000000T0000Z-181014T1200Z/ Galveston Island and Bolivar Peninsula- 431 AM CDT Sat Oct 13 2018   ...COASTAL FLOOD WATCH IN EFFECT THROUGH LATE TONIGHT... ...BEACH HAZARDS STATEMENT NOW IN EFFECT THROUGH SUNDAY MORNING...   The National Weather Service in Houston/Galveston has issued a Coastal Flood Watch, which is in effect through late tonight.        ...MODERATE TO HIGH RISK FOR STRONG RIP CURRENTS...   * Hazards...COASTAL FLOODING...Particularly along Highway 87 on             the Bolivar Peninsula              STRONG RIP CURRENTS   * Timing...All day, but increasing in threat at high tide overnight.   * LOCATION...Bolivar Peninsula and Galveston Island   * IMPACTS...Minor inundation of low lying areas and roads along   Gulf facing beaches from Bolivar Peninsula to Galveston Island   will be possible.   Strong rip currents will produce dangerous swimming conditions today and will likely persist through the weekend.

Swim near a lifeguard.   A Beach Hazards Statement is issued when threats such as rip currents...longshore currents...sneaker waves and other hazards create life-threatening conditions in the surf zone.
