Hurricane Lee brings rip currents to East Coast

Hurricane Lee may be far from the U.S., but the effects of the storm are already being felt along the East Coast. The storm is still in the open waters of the Atlantic, where it is expected to begin moving toward New England over the next couple of days. A U.S. landfall is not expected at this time. However, a large portion of the coast has a high risk of rip currents from southern Maine to Florida. Officials in Florida are urging beachgoers to use caution in the water.
