Maria is expected to move very slowly up the coastline mid-week, which may cause extended impacts and tropical storm conditions for Hatteras and Ocracoke Islands, per the 8 a.m. briefing from the National Weather Service Newport / Morehead City Office.

Maria is moving toward the north-northwest near 9 miles per hour, but a turn toward the north is expected by tonight.
