OCEAN CITY, Md. (AP) - Officials in Ocean City, Maryland are keeping an eye on Tropical Storm Arthur as it threatens the Atlantic Coast and plans for the Fourth of July.

City officials planned to meet Wednesday afternoon to make decisions regarding the schedule and timing of events scheduled for this weekend.

Officials expect the popular beach resort to be near capacity and say they want to give the public and local businesses as much advance notice as possible.

Forecasters say the size and path of the storm are still uncertain, but beach patrol officials say a tropical storm or hurricane doesn't have to be close to shore to cause heavy surf and dangerous rip currents. Those rip currents could be especially troublesome if sunny skies on Saturday draw lots of people to the water.
