Tropical storm conditions spread into VA

MIAMI (AP) - Forecasters say tropical storm conditions are spreading into Virginia, Maryland and Delaware as Hurricane Irene moves northward.

The National Hurricane Center said Saturday morning that Irene was still hitting eastern North Carolina with heavy rain and wind,
but that those conditions were spreading north. Tropical storm-force winds of more than 39 mph extend some 260 from Irene's eye.

Irene was centered about 120 miles south of Norfolk, Va. It was moving north-northeast at 15 mph. Maximum sustained winds remained
around 85 mph. The center of Irene is expected to pass near the mid-Atlantic coast Saturday night and into New England on Sunday.
