(AP) — Hurricane Arthur has weakened to Category 1 storm in the Atlantic after bringing flooding and power outages to North Carolina's Outer Banks overnight.

The U.S. National Hurricane Center says Arthur's maximum sustained winds have decreased to 90 mph with additional weakening expected.

Meanwhile, a new tropical storm warning was issued for Nova Scotia in Canada, where Arthur is expected to head as it moves northeast.
