Partial Closure of Kealakekua Bay After Earthquake

Tuesday, October 17, 2006
On October 15, 2006 an earthquake impacted the Hawaiian Islands resulting in falling rocks along the coastline. These falling rocks present a safety hazard to users of Kealakekua Bay. The Captain of the Port (COTP) has established a safety zone within Kealakekua Bay and in particular Subzone A, resulting in a temporary closure. Subzone A, as determined by the State of Hawai`i Department of Land and Natural Resources, is the area within the Bay between the shore and a line extending south from the lighthouse on Ka awaloa Cove to Napo opo o Beach (Hikiau Heiau). Notification will be made via channel 16 VHF FM and the USCG Homeport website once the COTP reopens the bay.
