Edouard Heads North

Hurricane Edouard kicked up the surf along the East Coast on Friday as it churned in the Atlantic on a course so unpredictable it could hit land anywhere from North Carolina to New England during the Labor Day weekend.

Forecasters weren’t sure when, where or even if the 130-mph storm would come ashore, leaving vacationers to wonder if they should hit the beach or head for higher ground. If the storm stays on track, it will hit Long Island, N.Y., Monday, forecasters said.

At 11 p.m. Friday, Edouard’s eye was 470 miles southeast of Cape Hatteras, N.C., and headed north at 12 mph. A north or north-northwest motion was expected to continue for the next 12 to 24 hours.
