MANTEO, N.C. (AP) — Hurricane Arthur is racing toward Nova Scotia as it continues to churn northward into Canada.

The storm's maximum sustained winds were about 75 mph (125 kph) early Saturday morning. It was moving at about 31 mph and located about 75 miles southwest of Yarmouth, Nova Scotia.

To the south, the storm swiped North Carolina's barrier islands without causing major damage or injuries. The only highway between Hatteras Island and the mainland was washed out, and officials hoped to reopen it sometime Saturday.

Rain from Hurricane Arthur disrupted some New York-area Independence Day celebrations but cleared in time for the nation's largest fireworks display in the East River between Manhattan and Brooklyn.
