Hurricane Maria Is "Potential Threat To Bermuda"

Hurricane Maria Is

Meteorologist Jeremy Wheeler reports hurricane force winds from Maria will stay offshore.

Maria will run into an area of weak steering winds as it approaches North Carolina. Those on the Carolina and mid-Atlantic coasts are warned to monitor the storm's progress. This will prolong the period of onshore winds, which push water toward the coast.

Direct impacts from the storm include tropical storm force winds and storm surge of 2-4 feet along the Outer Banks. Former Hurricane Jose is to thank for that.

Speaking to reporters Tuesday at a Puma gas facility in San Juan, Rossello said "the president has offered a waiver on matching funds" for aid from the Federal Emergency Management Agency, which means the cash-strapped island won't have to contribute to the initial costs of this federal help.

"Visitors to our beaches should stay out of the water during these risky conditions and wait until Maria passes", he said.

"I think Highway 12 will be underwater", Stewart said of the frequently washed-out Outer Banks road.

The storm was about 625 kilometers (about 390 miles) south-southeast of Cape Hatteras, North Carolina, moving north at about 8 miles per hour, the NHC said in its 11 p.m. advisory.

Loose outdoor items should be brought inside to prevent them from being tossed around in the wind and becoming risky projectiles. Hurricane-force winds extend outward up to 90 miles, primarily to the east of center, and tropical-storm force winds extend outward up to 230 miles.

Maria is being steered by a ridge of high pressure in the central Atlantic. Summerlike heat spanning the eastern-third of the nation will come to an end.

MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. (WMBF) -Hurricane Maria is located about 375 miles to the southeast of Myrtle Beach and moving slowly to the north.

The National Weather Service in Morehead City, North Carolina, said significant beach erosion is expected north of Cape Lookout.

Surf was up to the dune line in Nags Head Monday. The Category 1 storm is bringing tropical storm conditions to the East Coast of the United States, including heavy rain, risky surf, and potentially life-threatening storm surge. "Small craft should remain within the protection of intercoastal waterways this week and should remain in port on Tuesday and Wednesdayfrom North Carolina to southeastern Virginia". The main timeframe for the chance of gusty winds and rain along the Outer Banks will be Tuesday night through very early Thursday morning.
