Hurricane Arthur not worrying Cape residents, vacationers

Posted: Updated:
HYANNIS, Mass. (WHDH) -  The seas are calm and boats are still in the water on Cape Cod but the effects of Hurricane Arthur are starting to roll in.

"Well I cancelled my ferry ticket. Because there's a storm. I just didn't think it was worth it,” Tatum Peterson said.

Even with the storm heading up the eastern seaboard locals say it's too early to make too many preparations.

“With New England weather you never know,” Cindy Ladd said.

Most families on vacation say they're not going to let a little rain stop them from enjoying their Fourth of July.

"I'm not the Wicked Witch of the West I'm not going to melt when the rain hits,” Dan Kelly said.

Business owners say if the weather doesn't cooperate, people will just come inside to shop and go out to eat.

“Businesses are always ready, Fourth of July is a huge weekend for us and people still com in no matter what,” Elizabeth Wurfbain, a business owner from Hyannis, said.

The Fireworks in Hyannis have been cancelled, officials say they hope to reschedule them for the end of the summer.
