Hurricane Bill stirred up the seas off the New England coast over the weekend. The biggest casualties where the beaches, although one onlooker at a state park in New England has not been accounted for. A giant wave struck the coast and swept a group out to sea with the coast guard rescueing all but one. By Sunday night Bill was barely a hurricane as it brushed the coast of Nova Scotia and plowed onto Newfoundland. The storm has hurricane force winds 60 miles from the center of circulation. Large waves and dangerous rip tides have kept most tourist at home this weekend. Things will be getting back to normal on Monday as Bill should become extratropical over the colder Atlantic waters of the the North Atlantic.Meanwhile we will continue to be on hurricane watch as another wave approaches the Leeward Islands Monday morning. The good news is that chances of development are low for now.
