Here is the latest news from The Associated Press at 11:40 p.m. EDT

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — The National Weather Service says more than 5.4 million people live in areas now under hurricane warnings or watches on the U.S. East Coast. Another 4 million people are under a tropical storm watch.

WASHINGTON (AP) — Hurricane experts say the storm chugging for the Carolinas has all the ingredients to make Florence a monster. Warmer than normal sea temperatures are adding energy and rain to the storm. Wind patterns are allowing the storm to get stronger. Higher sea levels will make the storm surge worse. And an unusual combination of weather systems could stall the storm when it hits, allowing it to lash the region with high winds and enormous amounts of rain, forecasters said Tuesday.

CONCORD, N.H. (AP) — Eddie Edwards has won the six-way race for the Republican nomination in New Hampshire’s 1st Congressional District. If he goes on to win in November, the supporter of President Donald Trump would be the state’s first African-American elected to Congress. He sought to make the campaign about character and integrity, and criticized the Statehouse behavior of his main rival, state Sen. Andy Sanborn.

LAS VEGAS (AP) — MGM Resorts International drew criticism Tuesday for saying hundreds of survivors of the Las Vegas mass shooting, who are being sued by the casino operator, could opt to have the money that will be used to serve them a lawsuit instead donated to a charity. The company in July sued more than 1,900 victims of the Oct. 1 mass shooting at one of its properties and has been working to notify them. A victims’ lawyer called Tuesday’s offer “nonsense.”

NEW YORK (AP) — Two powerful light beams have lit up the lower Manhattan skyline as part of the annual Tribute in Light installation commemorating those who lost their lives on 9/11. The twin beams can reach up to four miles into the sky and are comprised of 88 7,000-watt xenon light bulbs positioned in two 48-foot squares, echoing the shape of the Twin Towers. The lights will fade away at dawn on Wednesday.
