Hurricane Maria is slowly crawling away from the North Carolina Outer Banks. The National Hurricane Center said its 5 AM advisory that the storm was located 145 miles east of Cape Hatteras, North Carolina moving north at 5 MPH. Maria is expected to turn north-northeast later today and then accelerate east by northeast into colder waters where it will finally dissipate over the next several days.

Tropical Storm Warnings are active for the northernmost parts of the North Carolina coast. We expect these warnings and our recommendation to suspend contact with these areas to be lifted later tonight.
