The largest storm this season, Hurricane Earl is headed North and spares the South states. Southeast states like North Carolina and Virginia are breathing a sigh of relief while Northeast states prepare for the worst. Because Hurricane Earl is headed North, states from Virginia to New York are under a state of emergency while Earl spares the south.
Hurricane Earl is currently located north east of North Carolina and moving toward the northern seaboard. Hurricane Earl is a category 3 and is expected to slow while in cooler ocean waters. Although this hurricane is headed north, all eastern seaboard states need to remain on alert.
Hurricane Earl is still a powerful and very large storm system. Areas in the northeast like the Jersey Shore and Cape Cod are preparing for impact of this hurricane. It seems this storm has its aim for the north east. Hurricane Earl is headed north and what seems like to many, is aiming to interrupt Labor Day celebrations.
Because Hurricane Earl is headed north and spares the South, many surfers in the northern states will be taking advantage of the waves. All coastal beaches have alerted swimmers and surfers of Earl. Although it is popular with surfers to tempt fate and surf during these times, authorities are warning people of the dangers and of the recent surfer who just died from Hurricane Danielle.
