A surfer hangs onto his board while trying to paddle out in rough surf September 3, 2010 in Montauk, New York. Much of the East Coast is preparing for Hurricane Earl, now a category 2 storm with sustained winds of 105 miles per hour. While current projections are that Earl will continue to weaken as it moves over cooler waters, it still described as a dangerous storm and the largest to make it into the New York City region since Hurricane Bob in 1991.
