At this point, we do not anticipate a direct hit along the U.S. East Coast, yet this intense hurricane will move near Bermuda by midweek next week.

Even though we may not have any direct impacts from Larry, the Carolina beaches may experience a rough surf later next week, as the powerful hurricane churns in the Central Atlantic.

We will keep a close watch on Hurricane Larry, and for any more tropical activity, as we continue through the Atlantic hurricane season, which runs through November 30th.
