Ocean City, Maryland is on high alert as Hurricane Earl churns up the Eastern seaboard.

Public Works Director Hal Adkins has been sitting in meetings all day today preparing for the arrival of Hurricane Earl sometime early Friday morning. He says that based on Earl’s current path, he’s much more concerned with making sure that all Earl leaves behind is gone by the time the sun comes out on Saturday morning.

"You always gotta look beyond the storm. You gotta realize in this specific case, it's Labor Day weekend, it's supposed to be beautiful, the sun will be out, low 80's, low humidity, and everybody's gonna show up on us. So it might be a long night Friday night," Adkins says.

Earl is projected to stay about 240 miles off the Ocean City coastline.
