 Hurricane Earl
Those of you living on the East Coast of the US need to pay particular attention to this storm.

Get your hurricane supplies ready NOW! Don't get caught in the crush of last minute shoppers.

Gas the car(s).

Fill your prescriptions NOW - don't wait until the last minute to do this.

Get money out of the bank NOW - ATM's quickly run out of cash. You will need small bills - not hundreds.

Be prepared to live without electricity - buy non-perishable foods NOW.

Be prepared to live with no help for at least 72 hours after landfall.

Stock up on ice - ice is life with no electricity.

Stock up on water.

Put your frozen food in large garbage bags NOW in the event you lose electricity.

Be smart and be safe.

Miami, Florida (CNN) -- Hurricane Earl was slowly strengthening in the Atlantic on Monday as it passed over the northern Leeward Islands on its way to the Virgin Islands, forecasters said.

Earl remained a Category 2 hurricane as of Monday, but its winds were getting stronger, the National Hurricane Center said. As of 8 a.m. ET, Earl's maximum sustained winds were at 110 mph (175 kph) with higher gusts.

Its center was about 25 miles (40 kilometers) northeast of St. Martin and about 140 miles (220 km) east of St. Thomas in the U.S. Virgin Islands. It was moving west-northwest at 14 mph (22 kph).

Earl could affect areas in the United States from the Carolinas to Cape Cod, Massachusetts, over Labor Day weekend, said CNN meteorologist Jacqui Jeras.

It is too soon to tell whether the storm could make landfall, she said. However, outer bands of the storm are likely to hit North Carolina beginning Thursday, kicking up large swells and possibly generating rip currents through Labor Day weekend, Jeras said.

Hurricane Earl moves away from Puerto Rico, could affect U.S.

Miami, Florida (CNN) -- After dealing a glancing blow to Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands, Hurricane Earl was heading back out into the open Atlantic Tuesday, but forecasters warned the large and dangerous storm could have the Carolinas in its sights later this week.

Earl quickly developed into a Category 4 storm on Monday, packing winds of 135 mph (215 kph). It also grew large, with hurricane-force winds stretching 70 miles (110 km) from its center and tropical storm-force winds extending outward some 200 miles (325 kilometers).

"We don't expect it to weaken," CNN meteorologist Rob Marciano said Tuesday. "It may strengthen."

As of 7 a.m. ET, the center of Earl was about 175 miles (280 kilometers) north-northwest of San Juan, Puerto Rico, and about 235 miles (380 kilometers) east-southeast of Grand Turk Island. It was heading north-northwest at about 13 mph (20 kph).

Thousands flee as Hurricane Earl threatens East Coast

RALEIGH, N.C. — Hurricane Earl appeared to have turned toward the U.S. coast Wednesday, an NBC meteorologist said, with concern growing that New England could receive a direct hit later in the week.

The National Hurricane Center also extended its hurricane watch from North Carolina into Virginia.

In North Carolina, visitors to the islands of Ocracoke and Hatteras were ordered to leave with Earl — currently about 180 miles east of San Salvador in the Bahamas and 780 miles south-southeast of Cape Hatteras, North Carolina — expected to track up the coast.

The 800 or so year-round residents of Ocracoke Island were told they did not have to go, but Emergency Services Director Lindsey Mooney said officials hoped they would follow about 5,000 tourists forced to leave for the mainland.

Thanks to Skeetobite @ Storm2K for the image. As you can see - any leftward wobble could be disasterous for North Carolina/Virginia.

Here is a link to the Earl discussion there:

Powerful, enormous Earl bearing down on East CoastBy the CNN Wire Staff
September 2, 2010 9:09 a.m. EDT

Kill Devil Hills, North Carolina (CNN) -- Large and powerful Hurricane Earl prepared to take a swipe at the Eastern Seaboard Thursday as residents from North Carolina to Massachusetts scrambled to ready themselves for its arrival.

Hurricane warnings and watches stretched from North Carolina to Delaware, and covered parts of Massachusetts.

President Barack Obama signed a disaster declaration for North Carolina Wednesday evening, following an emergency declaration by Maryland's governor earlier in the day. The action authorizes the Department of Homeland Security and the Federal Emergency Management Agency to coordinate relief efforts, and also makes federal funds available to states.

The monster storm is forecast to pass close to North Carolina's Outer Banks on Thursday night, the National Hurricane Center said. It is expected to take aim at southeastern New England Friday night. The storm's track shifted slightly to the west, closer to North Carolina's Cape Hatteras. The National Hurricane Center has posted storm watches and warnings as far north as Maine.

Watch out folks! Please be safe!

Massachusetts gets hurricane warning ahead of Earl
Not since Hurricane Bob in 1991 has a storm threatened so much of the East Coast

HATTERAS ISLAND, N.C. — As Hurricane Earl churned toward the Outer Banks of North Carolina with top sustained winds near 140 mph, forecasters issued a hurricane warning much further up the coast Thursday for parts of Massachusetts, including Nantucket.

The center of Earl was about 300 miles south of Cape Hatteras, N.C., around midday Thursday.

With the storm expected to start hitting North Carolina later in the day, officials expanded mandatory evacuation orders across new areas of the state's low-lying barrier islands.

The orders affect all visitors throughout Dare County as well as residents and visitors to the popular town of Nags Head, county emergency relief officials said.

Mandatory evacuations, similar to those already in effect for Hatteras Island and Ocracoke Island, were also ordered for the
beach communities at Morehead City, authorities said.

The National Hurricane Center in Miami issued a tropical storm warning early Thursday for the coast of Long Island and a hurricane watch was issued for areas of Massachusetts. A hurricane warning was already in effect for the North Carolina coast.

Canadian officials also put parts of the Nova Scotia coast under a tropical storm watch.

Hurricane Earl to Bash Nantucket, Cape Cod, Boston By Alex Sosnowski, Expert Senior Meteorologist
Sep 2, 2010; 11:01 AM ETShare |

Large and dangerous Hurricane Earl will bash Nantucket and Cape Cod with 100-mph winds Friday night, while strong winds, flooding and damage can be felt as far west as Boston.

Earl will make its closest brush to the U.S. coastline Friday night by passing within 30 miles of Nantucket. That will put the destructive, expanding eye wall and hurricane-force winds easily over the island, as well as Cape Cod, Martha's Vineyard, much of southeastern Massachusetts and the eastern part of Rhode Island.

People in these areas will be in harm's way and run the risk of being casualties, while property may be damaged or lost.

Post Re: Hurricane Earl
Earl to Rip across Nova Scotia, Atlantic Canada
By Alex Sosnowski, Expert Senior Meteorologist
Sep 2, 2010; 9:00 AM

Soon after touring Cape Cod and Nantucket, Mass., Earl will race northeastward across Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island, and the Gulf of St. Lawrence this weekend.

Even though Earl will be losing strength just east of New England, a direct hit on Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island is in store Saturday with winds of hurricane force throughout the provinces.

People on Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island can expect damage to be typical of a hurricane or severe nor'easter with downed trees, power outages, structural damage to homes and other buildings, as well as coastal flooding and rough surf.

Tropical storm-force winds with similar problems and sporadic damage can be expected in southeastern and northeastern New Brunswick, Quebec around the mouth of the St. Lawrence, and in portions of Newfoundland.

Conditions on nearby waters, including the: Atlantic Ocean, Gulf of Maine, Gulf of St. Lawrence, and the Bay of Fundy will be horrendous. Seas in the Gulf of Maine and the adjacent Atlantic will top 20 feet.

Earl, downgraded to Category 1, heads north

N. Carolina 'dodged a bullet,' but Northeast still wary of storm's arrival

BUXTON, N.C. — Officials downgraded Hurricane Earl to a Category 1 storm Friday, but warned they expect it to remain a potent hurricane as it approaches southeastern New England.

Winds have decreased to near 85 mph, forecasters said in an 11 a.m. EDT update, encouraging news to those farther up the the East Coast who have been on alert as they prepare to stare Earl down.

Earl was moving north-northeast at 21 mph as it hovered over the Atlantic 350 miles south-southwest of Nantucket and 175 miles northeast of North Carolina's Cape Hatteras.
