As of 5 p.m. the hurricane continued to churn just over 200 miles off the coast of North Carolina and move in a northeasterly direction. AccuWeather reports that a man in Kill Devil Hills, North Carolina died after he ignored "No Swimming" signs posted along the beach and encountered rough surf. "These swells could cause life-threatening surf and rip current conditions", the center said.
