Hurricane Larry is not a threat to Florida, but swells from the storm could start pounding beaches from Florida to Maine today.
The ocean seems a little smaller when you see how Hurricane #Larry is going to throw waves out from its center over the next couple of weeks. Surfers on the east coast should target Friday-Saturday for some good swells as of now. #surfing pic.twitter.com/ddVSiyLkEa

Larry’s sustained winds of 115 miles an hour could increase wave action all along the Atlantic Coast, prompting coastal flooding at high tide.
Also, swimmers need to watch out for rip currents that can also form as a result of the increased wave action.
Meanwhile, the remnants of Hurricane Ida are still bringing rain to parts of the Northeast and Southeast.
The showers are typical of late summer weather, but they’re adding to the troubles Ida’s destruction brought last week.
