OCEAN CITY, Md. - The mayor of Ocean City says the resort town's beaches are closed to swimmers as the East Coast braces for strong winds and rain from Hurricane Earl.
Mayor Rick Meehan said Thursday the beaches are off limits to swimmers because of pending weather driven by the hurricane. Meehan says lifeguards are only allowing in experienced body-boarders and surfers.
The mayor says the restrictions would likely continue through Saturday.
