2010: Tropical Storm Earl Moving Into Canada

Tropical storm Earl has left the area and has moved into Canada this evening. While the storm will be moving out, rip currents will be particularly strong due to Earl's effects.

Wave action should subside along our beaches tonight into Sunday.

The Rest Of The Tropics:

In the deep Atlantic, Tropical Storm Gaston degenerated into a remnant low. The system has become better organized Saturday morning and could become a depression again over the weekend.

    So many young Marines and especially Marine wives and kids with husbands deployed just do not know what to do when a hurricaine comes at us. Hope the media outlets have a good act to follow this one if a cat. 4 or 5 comes straight in. There was just a little slight wind and rain here. Don't think the grass even got much water.

    Hey everyone, I am so glad that the storm missed us. Earl may have weaked to 105 last night, but he still would of delivered a harder punch if closer. Our front to the west finally started picking up the pace and the high offshore finally staring eroding, so Earl turned a little quicker, which is very good news. By mid-afternoon, we should see tranquil weather.

    Actually Dana, you should have gone to the tab under weather and clicked on "Hurricane". I think WITN did a fair job of tracking the storm and gave us plenty of information. I went to WCTI and found inacurracies with the projected path. That was not consistent with NOAA. All of the computer generated paths of the hurricane are shown on witn which made it easy to project. They are even there this morning.

    I loved having Skip update us, but hours and hours to talk about the same thing is crazy. Let reg.programing continue and update us like the other stations, every 1/2 hour.

    Very thankful that it was a mild as it was. Have seen worse this summer during some of those storms.

    No problems. Downed limbs, didnt lose power. Just waiting for the gust and wind to die down. Should be a great weekend.

    If there is any such a thing - this was the best kind of hurricane! Electricity stayed on and I slept ALL night. Bye Earl and thanks!
