River heads close during storms

Posted: Monday, Sep 30th, 2013


WARRENTON, Ore. — The Coast Guard Captain of the Port Sector Columbia River in Warrenton, issued the closure of the Depoe Bay and Siuslaw bar entrances due to hazardous conditions at 11:30 a.m. Sunday.

The bar closure applies to all vessels and any request to transit the bars prior to reopening must be approved by the Captain of the Port. Mariners may contact the Coast Guard on VHF-FM Channel 16 or Sector Columbia River by telephone at 503-861-6211 for further information or to request crossing.

The Coast Guard will re-evaluate the bar closure on an ongoing basis and will re-open the waterway as soon as the offshore weather improves.

Coos Bay and Umpqua River bars have also been closed.

The Coast Guard understands the effects these closures have on commerce and will make every effort to re-open these waterways as soon as they are considered safe for navigation.
