PORTLAND — It’s another day of 90-degree heat, making it a perfect day for boat owners to be out on the water on the Maine coast.

But there’s no time for leisure as many boat owners move their vessels to safety in advance of Hurricane Earl, which is moving toward the East Coast. Many marinas are telling boat owners to pull their vessels from the water, or make sure their boats are in a safe location to ride out the storm.

The National Weather Service says the current track takes Hurricane Earl off Maine’s coast, but heavy surf and strong winds are still expected.

The Maine Emergency Management Agency says residents should be keeping tabs on Hurricane Earl because the storm track is still uncertain.
