Hurricane Joaquin Forecasted to Move Away from the US Coast

Hurricane Joaquin update 9am Friday, October 2:  Moving away from the coast, BUT – swells affecting portions of the southeastern coast of the United States will spread northward along the east coast of the US through the weekend. These swells are likely to cause life-threatening surf and rip current conditions. Regardless of Joaquin’s track, a prolonged period of elevated water levels and large waves will affect the mid-Atlantic region, causing significant beach and dune erosion with moderate coastal flooding likely. (This will be our last update on hurricane Joaquin unless it turns back towards the US).
