BOSTON (AP) - Gov. Charlie Baker says there’s a lot of uncertainty surrounding the track of Hurricane Joaquin, but state emergency management officials are making plans in case the powerful storm should have an impact on Massachusetts.

The governor said Thursday that state emergency management officials have been in contact with the National Weather Service and local officials and are doing as much preparation as they can without knowing where the storm is headed.

Baker noted it will likely be several more days before any effects are felt in New England.

Joaquin strengthened into a category 4 hurricane Thursday as it moved through lightly-populated islands of the eastern Bahamas.
