In another sign that summer is coming to an end, the U.S. Coast Guard has closed two seasonal boat stations. The Coast Guard said the stations on Block Island and in Scituate, Massachusetts shut down on Friday for the end of the summer boating season.

Coast Guard officials said they normally close the stations during the offseason, when fewer recreational boaters go out on the water.

Year-round stations remain open to respond to emergencies, including in the areas that were covered by the two seasonal stations.
