Hurricane Maria is still churning towards the East Coast

Hurricane Maria is still churning towards the East Coast

At 11 a.m., the hurricane was about 320 miles east of Nassau in the Bahamas and moving north-northwest at 8 mph. As such, everyone should prepare for these impacts while they continue to monitor Maria, according to Dare County Emergency Management.

The NHC said the Carolina and Mid-Atlantic coasts should continue monitoring the storm, as its hurricane-force winds still extend about 60 miles from the eye.

Maria weakened to a Category 2 storm Sunday, with sustained winds of about 105 miles per hour.

Depending on how close Maria ends up being to the coast, the slow movement and long duration may enhance impacts significantly to the Outer Banks, and probabilities for tropical storm force winds have increased slightly across the area since Saturday's briefing. If the storm stays in the wake of José, cooler water will eventually cause it to weaken, the Hurricane Center said.

As of the National Hurricane Center's 8 a.m. update, Hurricane Maria's track has shifted as it has turned north, and now some parts of the US eastern seaboard fall within its cone of uncertainty.

Looking farther ahead, she added: "Ex-hurricane Maria looks set to bring some stormy conditions to North-west Europe Monday 2 and Tuesday 3 October at this stage".

No coastal watches or warnings are in effect. A widespread destructive hurricane is very unlikely in that region, but there could be some travel issues and coastal evacuations, and there nearly definitely will be problems with large waves and rip currents on the beaches.

Hurricane Maria previously barrelled toward the Turks and Caicos Islands on Friday after lashing Puerto Rico and other Caribbean islands with winds and rain that destroyed homes, caused flooding, devastated economies, and left at least 32 people dead.

The hurricane claimed the lives of 30 people in the Caribbean, including at least 15 people in the small island Dominica.
