miami - Maria, currently one category 1 hurricane, can lose weight in one day and downgrade to a tropical storm, reports the American National Hurricane Center (NHC).
Hurricane Maria is currently about 285 kilometers southeast of Cape Hatteras (North Carolina) with maximum wind speeds of 120 kilometers per hour. The center of the hurricane will pass the next days east of the North Carolina coast, said the weather station in Miami.
US President Donald Trump said Tuesday that he is going to visit Puerto Rico, which has suffered huge damage by Maria. 'Puerto Rico needs a lot of money,' Trump told reporters in the White House. 'We have already sent massive amounts of food and water and other goods to Puerto Rico and we will continue to do so every next hour. '
