LIVE UPDATES: Tracking Henri
With Tropical Storm Henri approaching, the Milford Oyster Festival Committee will remove the tents as soon as the festival is over Saturday night. They hope to finish cleaning up Sunday morning.
Milford Mayor Ben Blake says it's important for residents to start planning now for Henri.
Blake urges people to take the necessary precautions, including moving cars to high grounds if they live in low-lying areas and on the shore.
