Watch Hurricane Maria on Outer Banks, buoy webcams

Officials in North Carolina estimate more than 10,000 people have left the Outer Banks as Hurricane Maria moves closer.

Hyde County emergency services director Jason Gibbs said Monday morning that 225 people had evacuated Ocracoke Island since the 5 a.m. order went into effect.

(Original article) MIAMI - Hurricane Maria is continuing north as it passes by the North Carolina coast over the Atlantic Tuesday. Hurricane force winds extend out about 70 miles from the center, and tropical storm force winds extend out 260 miles.

There is also a storm surge watch from Cape Lookout to Duck including the sound side of the Outer banks.

Maria is a category one hurricane with maximum sustained winds of 75 miles per hour. The U.S. National Hurricane Center said Maria is expected to keep gradually weakening and is forecast to become a tropical storm Tuesday night or Wednesday.

Schools were closed Tuesday in Dare County because of the storm conditions.

"It is likely that some direct impacts will occur along portions of the coast by midweek", the National Hurricane Center said in an advisory Sunday. Gibbs said the effects of the storm surge could begin late Tuesday afternoon.

The risky core of the storm is expected to move well east of the southeast coast of the United States during the next day or so. You can see from the first shot, which is just south of the new new Bonner Bridge, that they built up huge sand dunes after Hurricane Jose, which cut right across the road, covering it in sand and temporarily closing it.

The hurricane center is forecasting Maria to track northward for the next 36-48 hours then turn eastward and pick up speed.

Across the Caribbean and the Gulf of Mexico, tropical storms have killed at least 100.

Maria's most devastating effects came when the storm slammed parts of the Caribbean, especially the islands of Dominica and Puerto Rico.

"Hurricanes gain their energy from the warm tropical waters and ex-Maria will be modified significantly as it tracks over the cool North Atlantic ocean".
