Hurricane Maria continued its north-northwestward movement longer than anticipated putting its 5-day forecasted track uncomfortably close to the mid-Atlantic coastline. The National Hurricane Center said in its 5 AM advisory that "Interests along the Carolina and Mid-Atlantic coasts should monitor the progress of Hurricane Maria." It is possible that Tropical Storm and Hurricane Watches will be raised for the portions of the Carolina and Mid-Atlantic coasts later today.
The storm is now moving north at 9 MPH. ContactRelief is monitoring the storms progress and will issue recommendations should Tropical Storm or Hurricane Warnings (not watches) be raised. We recommend all subscribers be prepared to take action if a recommendation to suspend contact is issued.
