Hurricane Earl Threatens America's East Coast

f you're planning to spend Labor Day on an East Coast beach- you MAY want to re-consider those plans...

Hurricane Earl continues to strengthen east of Puerto Rico this Monday morning.

Earl is already a Category 3 storm- and each National Hurricane Center (NHC) forecast takes Earl's path further westward and increasingly closer to America's East Coast.

The latest NHC forecast shown here actually places the center of Earl- inside a larger forecast "cone"- near the shores of North Carolina's Outer Banks by this Friday.

From Boston MA to Savannah GA- keep a CLOSE eye on Earl this week!

Looks like the path Hugo took in 1989. Hmmm.

The way it looks today (0831)- Savannah SHOULD be spared.

Can't say the same about the Outer Banks of NC or- for that matter- Long Island NY and Cape Cod MA..

Hope for the best for the residents in that area...
