We should mention, big weather headlines. Arthur moving north right now. A live shot of Virginia Beach. You can see the heavy surf there. And they are really feeling the wind as it is passing by to the east, this hour. And look at this. The eye of the storm from space. This storm is literally 400 miles wide. So many people impacted by hurricane Arthur. Let's get to our coverage. Our extreme team has it all. We begin with ginger, who is tracking the storm and where it is this hour. Yep. We're looking at the satellite. A hurricane, obviously. A category 2. There it is. And you can see it off the coast, the eye of it. The brunt will be affecting not too many folks anymore. But the outer bands, touching on New Jersey. It will meet up with a cold front. And it will affect a ton of people along the east coast today. But not directly. The core stays out in the ocean. The cape will get brushed. You'll see parts of Canada later. It stays very strong. But going to hit a lot of cold water and have the sweeping motion of a cold front coming through. These will expire quickly. But keep the tropical storm warnings and the hurricane warnings for a couple of hours for Virginia Beach. And this is the tropical storm warning for the cape and nantucket. We are tracking, still, 100-mile-per-hour winds. Now, we want to go to David Kerley. Hey, ginger. You know from covering hurricanes, occasionally you're in place for the eye of a hurricane. That's exactly what happened this morning for us. It passed right over us. You see the waves being whipped up. The backbackslide, a lot of rain and a lot of wind. Arthur makes landfall with winds in excess of 100 miles per hour and battering rains. Sparks fled as transformers flared, leaving towns without power. We were in the middle of it in the night. The sand is just coming to my face. This woman's umbrella didn't stand a chance. The storm, also bringing widespread flooding. Some drivers forced to pull over. It's 100-mile-per-hour winds. This is the leading edge of the storm. A reported tornado tearing through rose hill, north Carolina. This man's ceiling collapsing just as he got his family out of the way. When I got my kids. Reporter: With Arthur moving up the coast and more than 400 miles wide, folks are bracing for impact. Anticipating hurricane-force winds. Reporter: This is an area just down the road, that was actually evacuated, cape hatteras. A lot of folks are hoping if the weather gets better, they can come back. But this storm is moving north. There's still going to be places hit by Arthur. We're going to go to Virginia Beach, where they are feeling hurricane Arthur at this hour. That's where we find Alex Perez this 340r7bing. Good morning, Amy. The eye of that hurricane just east of us. Those waves raging. Some people coming up, curious to see what's going on here. I want to give you an idea of what officials here are doing. The big lifeguard towers. They have put them down across the beach sideways to prevent them from flying away. Blowing away. One of the other concerns here, of course, wind gusts. Up to 50 miles per hour in some areas. And the rain. It rained through the night. And it is expected to continue raining today. Another thing to worry about here, tornadoes. There was a tornado watch in the overnight hours. The big fireworks show here at Virginia Beach has been postponeden postpo postponpostpo
