With debris left by Hurricane Irma cleared, South Florida ports open

The haul from PortMiami?s navigational channels in the wake of Hurricane Irma: four submerged sailboats and a floating dock in the turning basin. The storm also knocked two navigational buoys out of position into the middle of the channel.

Now that all the Irma debris has been towed away and the buoys have been put back in their proper places, PortMiami is open for business. The port?s north channel reopened at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, and the Coast Guard gave the green light to reopen the south channel Wednesday morning, said PortMiami Director Juan Kuryla.

At Port Everglades, which reopened Tuesday for the first time since Irma?s passage, petroleum companies worked around the clock to keep the South Florida market supplied with fuel.
