CHARLOTTE, N.C. - Democratic convention officials on Wednesday moved US President Barack Obama's acceptance speech inside on Thursday because of severe weather forecasts, canceling plans to hold it in a 74,000-seat outdoor football stadium.

The address will now be in the approximately 20,000-seat Time Warner Cable Arena, which has housed the first two nights of the convention.
