Still a minimal Hurricane…

Maria is forecast to slowly move away from the North Carolina
coast later today. However, tropical storm conditions are expected
to continue along portions of the North Carolina coast through this
afternoon.

Storm surge flooding is occurring, especially along the sound
side of the North Carolina Outer Banks, and a storm surge warning
and watch are in effect for portions of eastern North Carolina.

Swells generated by Maria are affecting much of the east coast of
the United States, Atlantic Canada, Bermuda, the Bahamas, and the
Turks and Caicos Islands. These swells are likely to cause
life-threatening surf and rip current conditions.
