At 11 a.m. Maria was located about 175 miles southeast of Cape Hatteras, North Carolina with maximum sustained winds of 75 mph.

Maria is now a tropical storm with winds of 70 miles per hour as treacherous surf and strong winds continue to pound the Outer Banks, according to the National Hurricane Center.

Maria was moving toward the north near 9 miles per hour (15 kph), and this general motion is expected to continue through Monday.

On Tuesday afternoon, North Carolina's coast remains under a Tropical Storm Warning as the remnants of the storm that devastated Puerto Rico and surrounding areas is expected to impact the Carolina coast.

A tropical storm warning is in effect from Morehead City to the North Carolina-Virginia state line.

A storm surge of 2 feet to 4 feet is possible on Ocracoke with up to 2 inches of rain possible through Wednesday.

The federal government will pick up 100 percent of the costs of debris removal and other emergency assistance to Puerto Rico after Hurricane Maria. Carteret Community College also ended all operations at 5 p.m. Tuesday.

A mandatory evacuation was ordered for visitors on Ocracoke Island in North Carolina on Sunday ahead of Hurricane Maria.

Puerto Rico remains without power, except for generators, and phone service is spotty, as officials struggle to provide food and water to those affected by the worst storm to hit the island of 3.4 million in almost a century.

The National Weather Services says beaches along the southeastern US will be affected, which includes Maryland shores.

The Weather Channel forecaster Eleanor Bell said: "Remnants of Maria are expected to move across Britain".

Visitors and residents gathered at Fort Macon State Park Tuesday morning to observe the rough surf as Maria churned up waters.

"People need to be mindful of the ocean conditions".

Tropical storm force winds nearing the Outer Banks.

"People ask me: 'Once we get past September, we're over the hump?' Not true", Kottlowski said.

Hurricane Charley battered Ireland in August 1986, causing the worst flooding in a century and smashing rainfall records.

Mr. Moore and Mr. Holt both surf and were at Fort Macon hoping to catch some waves.

In Hatteras, there was some overwash last night, and Hatteras village has had some significant soundside flooding issues.

"It's nice to be outside", she said. The Canadian Maritimes continue with swell from Maria without a lot of the negative influence on conditions that some regions see.

'This makes it hard to assess the likely impacts ex-Maria may have on our weather, therefore it's worth keeping up to date with the forecast for the latest information and we'll keep you updated with any potential impacts for the United Kingdom'. Adrienne Kina, who normally works as a saleswoman at REAL Watersports, says this storm "is going to screw" the locals again after a dayslong power outage this summer sent 50,000 tourists packing and cost the Outer Banks millions in lost tourism income.

"The system will be farther away by tomorrow", Ross said Tuesday.

Storms Lee and Maria soon will spin themselves down in the central Atlantic, then there will be a pause as there's no prediction new storms will develop in the next few days to replace them.
