Since last week, Hurricane Lee has been building up its strength in the Caribbean and heading to the North Atlantic. Lee will churn on the coast of New England and eventually hit Canada.

National Weather Service alerts all East Coast residents or beachgoers to watch for Hurricane Lee which could bring hazardous surf and high rip currents. National Hurricane Center issues advisories for the Atlantic on Hurricane Lee and Hurricane Margot. From today into this weekend, residents on the East Coast including Florida and beachgoers need to be away or avoid risks from the beaches.

“Dangerous surf and life-threatening rip currents will affect portions of the northern Leeward Islands, the Virgin Islands, Puerto Rico, Hispaniola, the Turks and Caicos Islands, the Bahamas, Bermuda, and most of the U.S. East Coast through much of the week,” according to the National Weather Service on its X account.

Currently, the center of the Lee is located at 24.3N, 65.9W with a maximum sustained wind of 115 mph, moving towards W-NW at 6mph as of Sep. 12, 7:45 p.m. EST. According to the forecast, on Sunday at 8 a.m., the center of Hurricane Lee will hit North New England and Canada.
