Hurricane Earl is causing  the closing of everything from beaches to railroad runs.

All Suffolk County beaches and ocean-based campsites will close Thursday and not reopen until Saturday morning, when Hurricane Earl presumably will have passed Long Island…

Cedar Point Park in East Hampton will also be closed…New York State has already closed Robert Moses State Park.

…no westbound Long Island Rail Road trains from Montauk and the North Fork will leave after 5:30 a.m. Friday morning until Saturday. Bay Shore-based Fire Island Ferries will not run Fire Island-bound vessels after 3 p.m. Friday…

The county does not plan to open emergency shelters…but has standby locations at Riverhead High School and the John J. Foley Skilled Nursing Facility in Yaphank…

The county has identified Riverhead High School as its primary East End emergency facility – outfitted with cots, blankets, toiletries and room for 900 people…County residents with special needs, including the elderly, will be housed at the John J. Foley center in Yaphank, if needed. Residents with pets will be able to go to the nearby Suffolk County Fire Academy…

Officials said those with questions regarding emergency procedures should call their local fire department, which will have updates for callers…

On its present track, Earl is expected to pass well to the east of Long Island. Forecasters said, however, that could change and that, no matter what, the East End is expected to get hit with several inches of rain and wind gusts of tropical-storm strength…
