Hurricanes Lee and Maria remnants to hit United Kingdom and Ireland

Hurricane Maria's projected path shifts west, giving NC more reason to keep watch

The National Hurricane Center says Maria has regained hurricane strength off the coast of North Carolina, a day after weakening to a tropical storm.

“However, strong winds with tropical storm force gusts and rough to very rough swells are expected tonight, as well as showers and a chance of thunder.”. An estimated 225 people already left, with another 700 still remaining on the island.

The U.S. National Hurricane Center in Miami has issued a tropical storm warning from Cape Lookout north up the coast to the Virginia line. Dare County officials will continue to closely monitor conditions and coordinate with NCDOT to determine when road conditions will allow reentry for Hatteras Island visitors.

Hurricane Maria is beginning to turn towards the east, away from the us coast.

"From that point in time, conditions will be improving along the east coast of the United States", said Moss.

The storm's consistent winds were about 70 miles per hour Wednesday morning, however, and the National Hurricane Center warned that Maria was still a risky storm.

"Mother Nature keeps chopping at it", said Meekins, an engineer on the temporarily halted Hatteras-Ocracoke ferry.




Thankfully, with the exception of higher than normal seas and offshore storm surge, there is no longer much impact on land rom either of these storms. "We see storm after storm".

He said a "massive" effort to help the islands recover from Hurricane Maria is underway. "We seem to have more of our share recently, and I'm over it", Donna Bennet said.

The Trump administration is announcing it will waive federal restrictions on foreign ships' transportation of cargo to hurricane-ravaged Puerto Rico.

The Category 2 storm is now producing winds of up to 110mph How will Hurricane Lee affect the UK's weather? Lee is not a threat to the U.S.

Hatteras and Ocracoke islands lost about 10,000 visitors to evacuation orders earlier in the week, the Associated Press reported.

No ferries were moving, cutting off access to Ocracoke, and with parts of the highway flooded even at low tide, any travel on Hatteras remains hazardous, Dare County Emergency Management Director Drew Pearson said in an email.

The major effects from Maria this week will be tidal flooding, wind gusts and rip currents - especially in the Outer Banks.
