Hurricane Jose threatens tri-town

The tri-town is under tropical storm warning, and residents are urged to take care of their boats and kayaks before the storm hits.

A tropical storm watch means heavy rains and winds from 39-73 miles per hour, so Marion Harbormaster Isaac Perry is making a few preparations and recommendations before it gets here.

"We're requiring kayaks be removed from the kayak racks," he said.

The department also requires people with boats docked on the eastern facing wharfs to move their boats to the inside of the harbor.

"That'll get their sterns out of the wind," Perry said.

The Harbormaster Department decided not to take its floats out of the water, but does recommend that people take their boats off the floats in front of the Harbormaster office.

Perry said he's not expecting anything too damaging from the storm, but still wanted to take some precautions.
