Tropical Storm Maria Moving Away From NE Caribbean

Monday, 12 Sep 2011 06:45 AM

MIAMI — Tropical Storm Maria is moving away from the northeastern Caribbean islands with little change in strength forecast.

Maria's maximum sustained winds early Monday are near 60 mph.

The storm is centered about 165 miles north of San Juan, Puerto Rico, and is moving northwest near 9 mph.

The U.S. National Hurricane Center says the storm's center is expected to pass well east of the southeastern Bahamas. Maria's forecast track shows it eventually curving away from the U.S.

Meanwhile, rescuers have been searching for an oil rig worker who's been missing since he and nine other workers evacuated their disabled rig during Tropical Storm Nate in the Gulf of Mexico last week. Seven workers were found alive Sunday. Two bodies have also been found.
