Hurricane Earl is now a powerful Category 4 storm. Right now, it is barreling toward the East Coast after battering tiny islands across the northeastern Caribbean. Heavy rain and winds damaged homes and toppled power lines. Earl is forecast to potentially brush the coast late Thursday, before curving back out to sea.
The National Hurricane Center is warning coastal residents from North Carolina to Maine to watch closely. Tim Schott is the hurricane program manager for NOAA’s National Weather Service. He joins the Federal Drive to talk about the federal response.
