Last Thursday, weather officials sounded the alarm about Hurricane Teddy and how it could hit directly on the coast of Maine; now that we know the storm is going to hit Nova Scotia, that still doesn't keep us out of the Woods.

The storm is passing by the coast right now and will create some high wind situations in coastal flooding in some areas along with erosion. According to WMTW Channel 8, experts say that riptide currents crashing on the streets can cause people to fall over if you're going to view the surf.

As we've seen this year, hurricanes are no joke no matter where in the country you are, so we have to remember to take these things seriously. The areas most likely to be affected by this are Old Orchard Beach, Scarborough Saco, and Maine's southern coastline. As Halifax NS looks to receive a direct hit tomorrow afternoon. At this point, Hurricane Teddy is a Category 1 storm and is expected to be carrying 85 mph winds.
