FAIRFIELD - Local marine police on Friday reminded boaters to be wary of stormy weather headed toward southwestern Connecticut.

Tropical Storm Hermine is expected to hit the area late Saturday into early Sunday, bringing with it strong wind and rain.

Police say that although they haven't seen many people concerned about the weather at the South Benson Marina in Fairfield, residents should still monitor their boats and prepared for the worst.

Officers advise adding extra lines to docks to make sure boats are secure, ensuring that bilge pumps and batteries are working and avoiding the water if the weather is severe.
