After a bitterly slow start to the 2010 Hurricane season, things are now firing up! Danielle, and now Earl have reached Category 2 status or higher. Danielle is moving away from the mainland and is currently weakening, posing no threat to the US. However; Earl is currently a Category 4 storm, packing winds sustained at 135mph and gusting to 165mph! Earl continues to intensify over the Caribbean while moving WNW. Earl’s track is uncertain; some models indicate Earl to begin moving towards the Mid-Atlantic and Northeast just in time for Labor Day. Stay Tuned! Even is Earl doesn’t make a US landfall, beach erosion, high surf and deadly riptides are definitely on the menu this weekend.
This is a life-threatening situation for anyone living in the path of this storm. Expect the best and prepare for the worst.
