Larry is now a category 2 hurricane; Coastal impacts for ENC unchanged
Larry’s strength is expected to wane over the next few days
Larry has finally seen its wind speeds drop to around 100 mph. The storm is forecast to get within ~50 miles of Bermuda by Thursday, which would put it about 750 miles off the coast of Cape Hatteras. A Tropical Storm Warning is in effect for Bermuda.
Larry will pose no direct threat to us in ENC, however rip current threats have raised to a high level across our beaches. A high threat of rip currents will continue through the end of the week but lower in time for the weekend. The peak of hurricane season is mid-September.
