Marion — After Hurricane Harvey devastated the Houston area with heavy flooding and Hurricane Irma leveled Florida, another hurricane is making its way up the eastern seaboard.

Hurricane Jose, currently east of Florida, is headed up the coast and the National Hurricane Center of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration predictions show it could hit southeastern Massachusetts by Wednesday.

The Marion Harbormaster Facebook page said the department is monitoring the storm, and will make a decision this weekend whether or not to haul the Island Wharf floats, once the forecast becomes more clear.

The post also encourages residents to remove vessels from the dinghy and kayak racks, as well as from the wharf floats.
