DEEP RIVER, Conn. — Marinas, coastal residents and others in the Northeast are keeping a wary eye on Hurricane Jose as it spins in the Atlantic Ocean, threatening to menace the region by the middle of next week.

In an advisory issued Friday afternoon, the U.S. National Hurricane Center said Jose had re-strengthened into a Category 1 hurricane.

At the Brewer Fiddler’s Cove Marina in Falmouth, Mass., service manager Scott Carpenter said Friday that one customer had asked for his boat to be hauled out ahead of the storm, but they have not made other storm-related plans.

“I don’t trust the weather people. Once it gets a little closer, we’ll start making decisions,” Carpenter said.

The storm was located about 485 miles southwest of Bermuda on Friday, with maximum sustained winds of 75 mph. The National Hurricane Center said Jose was expected to pass well offshore of North Carolina early next week, though strong winds could approach the Outer Banks.

It was too soon to determine any other direct effects on the U.S., according to the hurricane center.
