Bonnie Moving Away From East Coast

MIAMI (AP) -- Tropical Depression Bonnie is moving away from the U.S. East Coast on Friday, a day after re-forming into a tropical system.

Bonnie's maximum sustained winds Friday morning are near 35 mph (55 kph). The U.S. National Hurricane Center says strengthening is possible later in the day and Bonnie could again become a tropical storm.

But weakening is expected to begin by Friday night.

The depression is centered about 130 miles (210 kilometers) east-northeast of Cape Hatteras, North Carolina, and is moving east-northeast near 8 mph (13 kph).

Forecasters say dangerous surf conditions are still possible along parts of the North Carolina coast, including the Outer Banks, through Friday.
