Coast Guard Ready For Earl

As Hurricane Earl churns out in the Atlantic, those who guard our coastline are prepping for his arrival.

Coast Guard officials are reminding visitors and coastal residents that in the thick of a storm, their rescue capabilities are limited.

Officials are urging coastal North Carolinians to prepare for Hurricane Earl's arrival later this week.

The Coast Guard set port conditions to "whiskey" Monday in Morehead City. The status means they'll identify and track all vessels in port and establish contacts with emergency officials.

    The old saying "you have to go out but not come back" is no more. The weight the chances of losing a unit and if the conditions are that bad they do not have to go out.

    Anonymous - That saying is not the CG's motto and isn't even liked among CG high ranks. The true motto is Semper Paratus which means Always Ready. I agree that they do a great job in many arenas especially saving lifes.

    I hope that people will stay in while this storm is churning the waters. Coast Guard motto "You have to go out, you don't have to come back." Coast Guard, you do a wonderful job, your safety and well being are in my prayers.
