MAINE EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT AGENCY
Tropical Storm Watch Issued for the Coast of Maine
September 2, 2010
The National Hurricane Center has issued a Tropical Storm Watch for the entire coast of Maine as Hurricane Earl continues to threaten the eastern seaboard.
A Tropical Storm Watch means that tropical storm force winds (39 to 73 mph) are possible along the coast within 36 hours.
If you haven't done so prior to the issuance of the watch, it's a good time to begin preparations for the potential storm, especially for those actions that require extra time.
The National Weather Service Forecast offices in Gray and Caribou will be issuing additional information as Hurricane Earl approaches. Maine Emergency Management Agency recommends:
Most important, again, is to stay informed. Stay tuned to news broadcasts, or listen to your NOAA Weather Radio to be sure of current forecasts, and how the storm will affect your area.
