Hurricane Danielle plowed across the Atlantic with top sustained winds of 75 mph and was not expected to threaten the Bahamas or the U.S. mainland. High waves were likely along the southern Atlantic coast during the weekend, probably prompting a surf advisory, forecasters at the National Hurricane Center in Miami said. Late in the afternoon, Danielle was centered about 220 miles northeast of San Salvador island in the Bahamas, moving northeast at nearly 10 mph. But it was expected to turn north.

Residents there began all-too-familiar preparations for another onslaught while officials considered evacuations and warned that it wouldn't take much rain to push rivers in the eastern part of the state back above flood stages.

Gulf Coast communities should have in place "last resort" shelters for people who don't depart in time to escape a powerful hurricane, National Hurricane Center director Bob Sheets said in Harahan, La. Sheets said he understood there was a reluctance to accept vertical evacuation--the moving of people into high-rise structures--but some sort of last resort refuge should be worked out.
