Type: Notice
Date: 2005-10-04
Agency: Coast Guard, Department of Homeland Security
On August 29, 2005, Hurricane Katrina devastated the coastlines of Louisiana, Mississippi, and Alabama. The Regional Examination Center (REC) at New Orleans, which serves 14% of mariners nation-wide and reflects about 29,000 mariners in those three states, was completely flooded, destroying vital records and equipment, and rendering the facility temporarily inoperable. Since mariners in the area may also have lost their credentials in the storm and subsequent flooding, the Coast Guard is hereby implementing temporary measures to relieve some hardship on mariners in the Gulf coast area who need replacement credentials.
