… Hurricane Warning remains in effect…

… New information…
updated all sections.

… Precautionary/preparedness actions…
precautionary/preparedness actions…

Make the final preparations to protect life and property. Rush to
completion the hardening of your home or business by closing
shutters and bracing garage doors.

If evacuating… leave as soon as possible. Guard against being
stuck out on roadways when dangerous winds and heavy rains
arrive. Again… do not stay in a Mobile or manufactured home.
Remember… pets are not allowed in most official shelters… so
check ahead with your intended shelter.

If staying in a home… turn the refrigerator to maximum cold and
keep it closed. Turn off propane tanks and unplug small
appliances. Fill the bathtub with water in case the tap water
becomes unavailable after the storm. This is for cleaning and
Flushing purposes. Do not drink it.

… Probability of tropical storm/hurricane conditions…
the chance for hurricane conditions at this time is up to
24 percent. Also… the chance for tropical storm conditions at
this time is up to 83 percent.

… Winds…
sustained hurricane force winds around 75 mph are expected across
Cape Cod and islands. However… the highest probability of
hurricane force winds are expected at Nantucket where gusts up to
90 mph are possible. For the rest of the Massachusetts and Rhode
Island coastline… tropical storm force winds of 40 to 60 mph are
expected… with the strongest winds closest to the Cape Cod canal.
In this area wind gusts to hurricane force are possible. The
period of strongest winds should occur from around 8 PM Friday
into the predawn hours and then diminish toward Saturday morning.
Given trees remain fully leaved combined with heavy rainfall…
winds of this magnitude will easily be capable of Downing or
uprooting trees… especially across Cape Cod and the islands.
Therefore expect at least scattered power outages across Cape Cod
and Nantucket.

… Storm surge and storm tide…
with the present track projection and timing… storm surge
flooding is not a major concern along the Massachusetts coast. A
storm surge of 2 to 4 feet is possible along Nantucket Harbor…
the east side of Chatham… and the northeast facing coastline of
Martha/S Vineyard around the time of the Friday evening high tide.

Although a low risk at this time… more serious coastal flooding
could occur Friday night in Wellfleet and Provincetown Harbor…
if Earl should track farther west and pass very near the Outer
Cape. However this closer track is not expected at this time.

… Inland flooding…
the axis of heaviest rainfall is expected across far southeast
Massachusetts including the cape and islands. 2 to 4 inches of
rain are possible… with isolated amounts up to 6 inches. Much of
this rain may fall in a 6 hour period late Friday into Friday
night… which would be enough to produce urban and poor drainage
flooding along with areas of minor small stream flooding. The
axis of heaviest rainfall is track dependent and could shift
depending on the eventual track of Earl.

… Rip currents…
high surf and dangerous rip currents will continue into Friday
across the southeast Massachusetts shoreline. This includes Cape
Cod… Nantucket and Marthas Vineyard. The worst of these dangerous
beach conditions will be Friday as Hurricane Earl makes its
closest approach to southern New England. Earl will exit into the
Canadian Maritimes Saturday… however the southern New England
ocean waters will remain very turbulent into the weekend despite
improving weather conditions. Therefore expect high surf and
dangerous rip currents to persist into at least Saturday and then
slowly easing Sunday and especially Monday. Beach-goers should
check with local beach patrols and lifeguards before entering the
water. Swimming restrictions are likely with possible beach
closures Friday and possibly into Saturday. The most dangerous
surf conditions are expected at south and east facing ocean
exposed beaches.
