Coast Guard to Establish Security Zones Near Palm Beach

The zones are in the Intracoastal Waterway and offshore near Palm Beach, Fla.

The U.S. Coast Guard has announced it is establishing three security zones in the Intracoastal Waterway and offshore near Palm Beach, Fla., for President Trump.

The security zones will begin at 6 a.m. on Feb. 3 and will continue until 11:59 p.m. Feb. 6, to include waters of the Lake Worth Lagoon, Intracoastal Waterways, and the Atlantic Ocean in the vicinity of Mar-a-Lago Club and the Southern Boulevard Bridge in Palm Beach.

The Coast Guard says the zone is required in order to protect the president and official party, the public, and the surrounding waterway from terrorist acts, sabotage, or other subversive acts and accidents. Entering or stopping in the security zone is prohibited unless authorized by the Captain of the Port Miami.

Violation of a security zone can bring a civil penalty in excess of $88,000, a criminal penalty up to $10,000, and/or imprisonment up to 12 years.
