Arthur downgraded to tropical storm

Hurricane Arthur moved back over the Atlantic Friday and then weakened to a tropical storm early Saturday.

On North Carolina’s barrier islands, people hoped to salvage the rest of the holiday weekend despite some flooding and power outages. Arthur made landfall on the southern end of the barrier islands Thursday with sustained winds up to 100 mph.

Arthur was downgraded to a tropical storm as its winds weakened to 70 mph. Arthur was moving at about 22 mph and located about 65 miles southwest of Yarmouth, Nova Scotia.
