According to The Weather Channel, Hurricane Arthur made its first landfall over the Shackleford Banks, between Cape Lookout and Beaufort, North Carolina, at 11:15 p.m. EDT Thursday. Arthur is now a Category 2 hurricane. Its center will continue to pass over portions of the North Carolina coast and the Outer Banks over the next several hours.

A tropical storm warning is in effect for Nantucket and Cape Cod from Provincetown to Chatham, Massachusetts.

The current path projections are for Hurricane Arthur to miss Connecticut; however, Lake Compounce is not taking any chances on the safety of its customers.
