Michael continues to weaken over central Georgia

Tropical Storm Michael is losing more punch as it crosses Georgia.

As of 2 a.m. EDT, the once fierce hurricane's core was about 25 miles east of Macon, packing maximum sustained winds of 60 mph and speeding northeast at a 20 mph clip, according to the National Hurricane Center.

The NHC said, "On the forecast track, the core of Michael will move across central and eastern Georgia this morning, and then over southern and central South Carolina later today. Michael will then move northeastward across the southeastern United States and then move off the Mid-Atlantic coast by early Friday.

"Michael will steadily weaken as it crosses the southeastern United States, but it is forecast to re-strengthen some when it moves off the east coast of the United States and becomes apost-tropical cyclone on Friday."

Tropical-storm-force winds extended outward up to 160 miles.
