Category 3 Hurricane Earl Nears America's East Coast

Hurricane Earl continues on a northward path this Thursday morning- forecast to brush the East Coast from North Carolina's Outer Banks to New England.


Hurricane warnings are now in effect for those areas.

Images from a US Army Corps of Engineers camera on the North Carolina shore shows oceans swells increasing as Earl approaches.

The outer bands of Earl are now being picked up on land-based NWS Doppler radars as those outer bands brush the South and North Carolina shores.

Earl is not forecast to strengthen any further- and should decrease in intensity as it heads north toward the southeastern provinces of Canada.
