Nuisance, yes. Downed power lines, in spots. Disastrous, no.
Hurricane Earl is forecast to pass about 150 miles southeast of Long Island Friday evening. The greatest local impacts from Earl are expected across eastern long island and potentially Southeastern Connecticut.

If you have a boat,a Tropical Storm Watch continues for the entire shoreline. When making decisions...do not focus on the exact forecast track. Impacts from a hurricane can be felt several hundred miles away.
For the shoreline, continue with your preparations and listen for possible warnings. Small crafts should return to port or seek safe harbor.
I’ll try and update you throughout the day.
