GRAY, Maine (AP) - Maine Gov. Paul LePage is urging residents to keep an eye on the weather forecast this weekend in the event the track of Hurricane Joaquin shifts closer to the state.

The Maine Emergency Management Agency says residents should gather emergency supplies as a precaution in case the storm has a bigger impact than expected in Maine. And LePage said flash-flooding during heavy rain earlier this week should serve as a reminder about how the weather can change quickly.

The National Weather Service in Gray says Hurricane Joaquin’s presence could be felt in the form of higher-than-average waves and wind on Monday. MEMA Director Fitzgerald said people should be aware of strong surf and possible rip tides.

The Atlantic hurricane season officially lasts until Nov. 30.
