Hurricane Maria path: Category 2 storm may get uncomfortably close to East Coast before turning

A weaker Hurricane Maria continued on a path northward off the U.S. East Coast on Sunday. The National Hurricane Center said Maria, a Category 2 hurricane with sustained winds of 110 mph, will continue to track northward parallel to the coast before making a turn away from land and to the east. It’s where and when that turn will happen that is problematic.

For that reason, the hurricane center said tropical storm — or hurricane — watches may be issued for parts of the North Carolina or Mid-Atlantic coasts today. click here to read the story 10:48
