Arthur Moving Away

The early morning weather report here in Florida is station that tropical storm Arthur is moving away from the state. It’s about 95 miles roughly east of Cape Canaveral with winds of about 50 miles an hour. Although it may have a minimal effect on Florida, it may be quite different farther north. Hilton Head Island in South Carolina may be walloped by hurricane force winds if Arthur does become a Category One hurricane. Farther north is Myrtle Beach, the most popular resort town in the Carolinas.

As usual, the Outer Banks of North Carolina will be in harm’s way. Sticking out into the Atlantic, they are quite often beaten up by any Atlantic Hurricane. Hope the Independence Day weekend is not affected by Arthur, but looks like some people will get hit.
