Due to the National Hurricane Center's projected path of Hurricane Arthur, Lake Compounce has rescheduled their annual July 4th Fireworks show to Saturday July 5th.
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.
Lake Compounce indicated the show will go on so stay tuned for more details as the storm sweeps up the Atlantic Seaboard.
