Arthur Moves Up Coast, Soaking New England

BOSTON (AP) - It's not much of a beach day on this Fourth of July along the mid-Atlantic coast and the Northeast, as Hurricane Arthur makes its way north.

Beachgoers at the Jersey Shore are being warned about potentially dangerous rip currents and forecasters say the storm could also bring periods of heavy rain and gusty winds. There's been some flooding in Cape May and other coastal areas of south Jersey.

The National Weather Service has issued a flurry of advisories for New England, including flash flood watches and warnings with up to 6 inches of rainfall possible in some areas.

A hurricane warning has been issued for the Atlantic Ocean east of Cape Cod, with Arthur centered 145 miles southwest of Nantucket at last report.

But the weather is already clearing in North Carolina's Outer Banks, which had a five-hour encounter with Arthur overnight. State emergency officials say more than 40,000 people lost power and floodwaters buckled part of a state highway on Hatteras Island. Gov. Pat McCrory says officials hope to have the road and the bridge to Hatteras open by the end of the day tomorrow.
