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 

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 Sec.  165.T05-
0494. The correct entry should have read to add Sec.  165.T05-0330. 
This document, and the List of Subjects below, corrects that
