Hurricane Joaquin continues to literally walk north at 3 mph. It’s expected to pick up the pace today while turning slightly to the northeast.
The turn represents good news for the East Coast as Joaquin is predicted to not make landfall. The Category 4 storm packs 130 mph winds extending out in a radius of 50 miles.
The Bahamas continue to bear the brunt of this storm. Storm surges of 2 to 4 feet are expected as well as 12 to 18 inches of rain. Rainfall totals could reach 25 inches in some locations.
