Hurricane Maria: Path forecast keeps Maria away from United States mainland

The NHC said: "Maria is forecast to slowly move away from the North Carolina coast later today".

Hurricane Maria was downgraded to a tropical storm Tuesday night as it made its way toward North Carolina.

The hurricane center said the system is expected to move northward over Cuba and near Florida's east coast over the weekend and could bring heavy rain to the Keys and Florida peninsula.
