Hurricane Sandy treks parallel up Southeast coast

MIAMI (AP) — Forecasters say Hurricane Sandy is roaring northeastward on an offshore track parallel to the Southeast coast off the Carolinas.

The National Hurricane Center in Miami said Sandy will continue moving parallel to the Southeast coast most of the day and approach the coast of the mid-Atlantic states by Monday night. At 5 a.m. EDT Sunday, was centered about 260 miles south-southeast of Cape Hatteras, N.C. The vast storm system was packing 75-mph sustained winds and little change in strength in the large and powerful storm was expected in coming days.

Forecasters say tropical storm conditions are spreading over North Carolina's coastline and gale-force winds should begin being felt along portions of the mid-Atlantic coast later Sunday with higher winds likely after that.
