ON LONG ISLAND’S SOUTH SHORE (WCBS 880) - Summer may ending, but the threat of a hurricane is not.

LISTEN: WCBS 880 Long Island Bureau Chief Mike Xirinachs reports

In fact, Weather Services International is reminding us that the northeast coast remains at twice the average risk for a major hit through November.

Greg Cummings is one Long Islander paying attention and he told WCBS 880 Long Island Bureau Chief Mike Xirinachs, “I remember, what was it? Maybe in ’07, we got a hurricane on the first of November. Until we get to November, I think you have to be on the lookout, especially here.”

Storm experts say it’s too soon to let your guard down.

Martha Cowen is hearing that message. She says, “I believe it could happen any time. Mother Nature is wicked!”
