North Carolina's outer banks to take full force of hurricane Arthur

Yahoo! National News - Fri, 07/04/2014 - 08:27

Hurricane Arthur over the Atlantic is shown in this photo from the International Space Station and tweeted by European Space Agency astronaut GerstBy Chris Keane HATTERAS ISLAND, N.C, (Reuters) - The first hurricane of the Atlantic season gained strength on Thursday as it spun closer to the North Carolina coast, bringing the anticipated stiff wind gusts and heavy rain that forced thousands of vacationers to scrap their July Fourth holiday plans amid evacuation orders. Hurricane Arthur was about 140 miles (225 km) southwest of Cape Hatteras, North Carolina, with maximum sustained winds of 90 miles per hour (150 km per hour) putting it on the verge of Category 2 status, U.S. forecasters said. Moving at 15 mph (24 kph), the center of the storm shifted slightly west on Thursday afternoon and was expected to pass over the North Carolina Outer Banks and coast late Thursday with winds reaching up to 100 mph (160 kph), according to the National Hurricane Center in Miami. The shift in the track would bring the strongest winds inland over eastern North Carolina, affecting coastal towns such as Morehead City, as well as the U.S. Marine Corps base at Camp Lejeune.

Texas governor renews calls for National Guard at U.S.-Mexico border

Yahoo! National News - Fri, 07/04/2014 - 08:16

Texas Governor Rick Perry attends the second Annual Champions of Jewish Values International Awards Gala in New YorkBy Jon Herskovitz AUSTIN Texas (Reuters) - Texas Governor Rick Perry and a key U.S. lawmaker renewed Republican calls on Thursday for National Guard troops to be sent to the U.S.-Mexico border to help stem a surge of Central American nationals entering the United States illegally. Perry addressed members of the U.S. House of Representatives Committee on Homeland Security at a field hearing at McAllen, Texas, in the Rio Grande Valley, the region hardest hit by the thousands of children and families who have streamed to the border in recent months. He said Texas expects to spend an extra $1.3 million a week through the end of the year to beef up law-enforcement efforts to deal with the crisis, on top of $500 million that he said Texas has spent since 2005 to help secure the border. "The rapid influx of illegal immigrants has strained border resources that were already insufficient to the task at hand," said Perry, who is considered a possible 2016 Republican presidential contender.
