According to WGME, there's a chance that Tropical Storm Florence could hit Maine next week.

Even though it has lost some steam, it is expected to re-intensify later this weekend and could reach Category 4 Hurricane status.

The storm is currently (Saturday, Sept 8th @ 10 AM) approximately 1600 miles east of the United States and is traveling westward at 8 MPH.  While it is too early to tell for sure, meteorologist say it could make landfall somewhere between Florida and Maine late this coming week (Thursday).

According to CMP spokesperson Gail Rice, they are keeping an eye on the situation and have already contact mutual aid partners just in case the storm does make landfall in Maine.
