AGENCY:

Coast Guard, DOT.

ACTION:

Correcting amendments.

SUMMARY:

The regulations related to the movement of vessels in Tongass Narrows, Ketchikan, AK during the annual fireworks display. That document contained a latitude/longitude position and a required safety fallout radius from the barge conducting fireworks display that has changed; thus, a correction is necessary.

DATES:

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

In final rule 59 FR 31933, the latitude/longitude position and safety fallout radius around the barge conducting fireworks display are no longer correct because the marine event sponsor has increased the fireworks display shell size (12 inches) and amount of fireworks display (600 lbs Division 1.3G UN 0335), causing an increase in the required safety fallout radius of 300 yards around the barge conducting fireworks display activities and changing the latitude/longitude position.

Need for Correction

As published, the final regulations contain errors which may prove to be dangerous to the public and need to be amended. Accordingly, 33 CFR Part 165 is corrected by making the following correcting amendments:
