Seacoast Preparing for Possible Effects of Hurricane Lee

New Hampshire’s seacoast region is preparing for the possible effects of Hurricane Lee.

The category 3 storm appears to be headed toward Atlantic Canada, but folks here should brace for wind, rain, and rough surf this weekend.

If the conditions get too bad, red flags will be placed at local beaches to warn swimmers.

Meantime, people should make sure they have emergency kits prepared at home.

The kits should be stocked with things like food, water, flashlights, batteries, and first-aid supplies.
