A strong low-pressure system is bringing strong winds, waterfront flooding and high surf along the mid-Atlantic coast.

The National Weather Service says showers and isolated thunderstorms are spiraling around the storm system centered on the border of North and South Carolina.

Rainfall that's totaled nearly 4 inches in Wilmington is expected to ease as the clouds move ashore. Minor flooding is reported along the coast from South Carolina to Virginia. Wind advisories extend more than 100 miles into central North Carolina.

The storm also caused flooding and power outages in portions of Hampton Roads, Virginia, and prompted restrictions on the Chesapeake Bay Bridge-Tunnel.

Meanwhile, the national hurricane center is issuing advisories on newly formed Tropical Storm Kyle located about 555 miles south-southwest of Bermuda.
