East Coast Keeps Eye on Hurricane Isabel

September 15, 2003|From Times Wire Reports

Hurricane Isabel weakened slightly but was still a powerful Category 4 storm as it plowed across the Atlantic Ocean on a course that could slam it into the central East Coast late this week.

"It's looking more and more likely that this is going to be a big event for the Eastern United States," National Hurricane Center meteorologist Eric Blake said in Miami.

Isabel is expected to hit "somewhere between North Carolina and New Jersey" on Thursday or Friday, hurricane specialist Stacy Stewart said.
