Hurricane Arthur is down to tropical storm statues as it heads into Canadian territory, and its effects were mostly confined to Hatteras and Ocracoke islands in North Carolina.

Some vacationers are already back on the beach to the north and south while North Carolina officials say they're open for business. Crews hope to reopen Route 12 to Hatteras today.

The storm swiped North Carolina's barrier islands without causing major damage or injuries.

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.
