The GardaWorld Crisis Management Team continues to monitor Tropical Storm Arthur, which is nearing hurricane strength. As of 11:00 AM EDT this morning it has a maximum sustained wind of 60 mph. The National Hurricane Center issued a Tropical Storm Warning for coastal and parts of eastern North Carolina including Wilmington.
