(NECN: Jennifer Eagan - Salisbury Beach, Mass.) - Lifeguards are preparing for a busy week as Hurricane Earl churns up the east coast.

The remnants of Hurricane Danielle and the approach of Earl have created dangerous rip currents at local beaches.
Tuesday morning Puerto Rico is already feeling the strong winds and heavy rain from Hurricane Earl.
The storm is now pulling away from the U.S. territory and the Caribbean.
But it's expected to drop up to eight inches of rain in some places.

NECN reporter Jennifer Eagan is at Salisbury Beach in Massachusetts with more on the warnings for swimmers.
