Condition Two means that hurricane force winds are possible within 24 hours. The maritime industry is urged to review their hurricane plans to ensure the safety of their personnel and property. Vessels should plan their transits so as to avoid heavy weather to the extent possible. Bridge closures on the Inner Harbor Navigational Canal may begin up to 48 hours before hurricane landfall.
