Lifeguards have their hands full I'm sure. The run out are really bad. Did you know if you're ever caught in one the best thing you can do is just let it take you out (easier said than done I'm sure) the farest it runs is just past the first breakers. So it really doesn't run out to sea. Then you swim to the side to get out of a rip current.
We shift our concerns now to our neighbors to the north of us. Earl is 400 miles north of us and we know our friends in NC are under the effects of Earl. We hope that it just skirts by and moves on out to sea...but we know that the track is on for it to impact the outer shores of the Eastern Seaboard and then find landfall in Canada. We hope that when it does it comes onshore as a rainmaker and does not cause any major damages.
