Forecasters are still hoping Hurricane "Edouard" will stay away from land altogether -- but there's a 50 percent chance Long Island or Cape Cod will be hit.
There is some good news: Winds are down to 115 miles-per-hour and could drop MORE before landfall.
Stormwatchers estimate that the hurricane should weaken within the next 24 hours.
However, Edouard has been pounding the coast.
Manuel Gallegus has more from North Carolina.

(( People on the outer banks can now get down to the business of enjoying the last holiday weekend of the summer...although high tides due partly to the full moon may keep them out of the water. Even though there never was a real panic here for Hurricane Edouard...it did pose a threat as it loomed out at sea...but people who live in this area are used to hurricane warnings: YOU JUST GO ON WITH YOUR LIFE..." I'M OLD ENOUGH NOT TO BE SCARED ANY MORE...
Although there is no way to predict the exact path of Hurricane Edouard...it now appears the potentially dangerous storm will impact southern new england starting sunday night. So now the threat shifts to places like atlantic city, new jersey....long island, new york and cape cod massachutsetts. but saturday afternoon looked like just another day at the beach in all those places...although some massachusetts boat owners were not taking a chance))

On this Labor Day weekend-- a lot of folks are planning to head to the beaches and want to know what to expect.
Things are looking better-- Edouard is continuing to push northward.
Let's take a look. Take liveline
As you can see, the hurricane is still quite a presence in the Atlantic tonight-- it's about 450 miles south-southeast of Long Island, New YOrk.
What is somewhat encouraging is that Edouard is showing some signs of weakening as it moves into cooler waters.
Heavy surf advisories are still in effect for the Mid- Atlantic coast.
Edouard is NOT as well organized as it once was.
But while it continues moving northward-- a westward turn is not out of the question.
