A. Background

On October 4, 2013 fireworks will be launched from a barge located in Shallowbag Bay in Manteo, North Carolina as part of the Outer Banks Bluegrass Festival. The temporary safety zone created by this rule is necessary to ensure the safety of vessels and spectators from hazards associated with the fireworks display. Such hazards include obstructions to the waterway that may cause death, serious bodily harm, or property damage, as well as the accidental discharge of fireworks, dangerous projectiles, and falling hot embers or other debris. Establishing a safety zone to control vessel movement around the location of the launch area will help ensure the safety of persons and property in the vicinity of this event and help minimize the associated risks.

B. Need for Correction

The Coast Guard published a document in the Federal Register on July 5, 2013, for this temporary safety zone (78 FR 40394). In that document it was incorrectly mentioned to add temporary § 165.T05-0494. The correct entry should have read to add § 165.T05-0330. This document, and the List of Subjects below, corrects that discrepancy.
