Some Ferry Service to Fire Island to Be Suspended Due to Hurricane


NYCers on vacation for Labor Day weekend be advised. As Hurricane Earl approaches New York, ferry service to some parts of Fire Island has been suspended, Michael Lavers reports:

"Fire Island Ferries will suspend service from Bay Shore at 3 p.m. tomorrow. It said ferries would resume early on Saturday, Sept. 4, once conditions improve. The Sayville Ferry Company told the News the 7 and 8 p.m. ferries to the Fire Island Pines tomorrow night are cancelled."

Since the above update, the midnight ferry to both the Pines and Cherry Grove has also been canceled, according to a message from the Sayville Ferry Service.

Those in Provincetown have a bit more to worry about according to the latest forecast.

A tropical storm warning is in effect for eastern Long Island, while a hurricane warning is in effect for the Cape and Islands of Massachusetts.
