Transcript for Danny Becomes First Hurricane of This Year's Atlantic Season
Neal, thank you. Next to what is officially hurricane Danny. Swirling in the tropics and growing in strength at this hour. The first hurricane in the atlantic this season. There is also a more immediate threat, though. The severe weather from the mid-atlantic up through the northeast, after four inches falling in central New Jersey, turning this interstate into a river in the last 24 hours. Lightning all part of the storms in North Carolina tonight. At ft. Bragg, reports 16 soldiers were injured by lightning strike. So, let's get right to rob Marciano, first, the severe weather you are tracking. Reporter: Lines of strong storms moving across the east. I want to focus on the flash flood warnings through D.C., Baltimore, in through Philadelphia. Into new England overnight. This is probably going to be some problems for the morning commute. We saw the headline today, the first official hurricane in the atlantic. Reporter: 80 miles an hour. Look at this image, though. It's a very small storm. It makes it difficult to predict the intensity. The forecast track still brings it into the caribbean lat weekend. Still too soon to say if it gets to the U.S., but the next three to four weeks, going to be very active. We're getting into primetime for hurricane season. Rob, thank you.
