Town officials in Westport, Massachusetts, are keeping a close eye on Tropical Storm Hermine, as it’s expected to bring a rough surf to southeastern Massachusetts.
At Westport Marina Sunday evening, people were pulling boats from the water or securing them with extra lines in preparation for the heavy winds.
Wind gusts reached 35 mph Sunday evening and have ramped up Monday morning.
Officials at Horseneck Beach say they will continue to monitor conditions, but that it’s likely the beach will remain closed to swimmers Monday.
Hermine is expected to move out of the area Tuesday night and sunshine will return Wednesday.
