We need to understand how Mainers put together for a hurricane

Maine is prone to obtain the primary direct hit from a hurricane in additional than 30 years this weekend, when Hurricane Lee is predicted to make its method into the Gulf of Maine someday on Saturday. 

The present projected path would see the brunt of the storm’s pressure hit midcoast and Down East Maine in the course of the day on Saturday, although it’s anticipated to be downgraded to a class one storm by then, if not a tropical storm. 

Maine doesn’t get hurricanes fairly often. The final massive storm to hit Maine was Hurricane Bob in 1991. Different, newer hurricanes that hit the northeastern U.S., like Irene and Sandy, didn’t make a lot of an impression right here in Maine.
