Earl set to stay on course out of harm’s way

Hurricane Earl just  stopped about 120 miles off of the Jersey shore, Western Connecticut State University Weather Center meteorologist Bill Jacquemin said.

It won’t reach Connecticut until later this evening.

Residents can expect some showers and wind, “but trees won’t be crashing to the ground,” Jacquemin said.

Southeastern Connecticut will bear the brunt of the storm, which was reduced to Catagory 1.
