Allentown Fair Will Have Serious Star Power

Hurricane Earl Won't Make Landfall, but Will Affect U.S.

Hurricane Earl is coming closer to the U.S. and is expected to start affecting the Carolinas sometime tomorrow. Don't expect Hurricane Earl to ruin the Labor Day Weekend if you're hanging out on the Jersey Shore.
