The National Hurricane Center (NHC) this morning said Tropical Storm Danny remains a minimal tropical storm, but warned interests from the Carolinas northward to New England and Canada to monitor its progress. Earlier today the center of Danny was located about 355 miles south of Cape Hatteras North Carolina and moving toward the north-northwest near 9 miles per hour. A tropical storm watch is in effect for part of the North Carolina coast, meaning that tropical storm conditions are possible within the watch area and in this case within the next 24 hours. The center of Danny is expected to pass offshore of the outer banks of North Carolina early Saturday. The NHC also warned that large swells from Danny are expected to produce dangerous surf conditions and life-threatening rip currents along the U.S. East Coast during the next day or so. Waves from Hurricane Bill two weeks ago claimed the lives of two people: a swimmer in Florida and a 7-year-old girl who was among a group of spectators swept out to sea by a large wave while watching the surf in MaineÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Acadia National Park.
