Brian McNoldy, a senior research associate at the University of Miami's Rosenstiel School tweeted: "Hurricane Maria has a giant wind field, and it's lashing the Outer Banks with strong gusts". Residents shared the sentiment that this isn't something they're really scared of, but Keith Jones, who just moved to the island, says while not anxious about the storm, he is prepared.

Hurricane Lee is no threat to land.

Forecasters said that weather systems like Maria often head north out of the tropics, but when hurricanes lose connection with warmer tropical waters they lose their source of energy and weaken rapidly as a result. That should shunt it to the north over the next few days.

Storm surge flooding is a strong possibility, especially along the Outer Banks as Maria's slow movement will result in several hours of onshore flow.
