Millions of eyes across the eastern seaboard are closely watching Hurricane Earl, the category three storm churning in the Atlantic and headed toward land.
The storm’s projected path has it skirting the coast near North Carolina and Virginia by Friday morning, then traveling along the east coast north toward New York and Boston. It’s too early to tell exactly how close the storm will get, or whether landfall will even occur.
Florida isn’t expected to face a direct hit, however, big waves are expected along Daytona Beach and other Florida coastal communities, giving surfers a good time but causing headaches for business owners and local governments on edge over erosion.
