KENNEBUNKPORT — Former President George H.W. Bush and his wife, Barbara, are planning to ride out Hurricane Irene at their summer home in Kennebunkport.

But Jim Appleby, spokesman for the Bushes, says plans are made to move them to an inland location if the surf and wind become too rough at their Walker’s Point home.

Appleby says the Bushes want to stress that they are going to follow what the emergency management officials direct them to do.
