Tropical Storm Chris could affect East Coast

  • Rain and storm winds blowing trees

While no direct impacts are expected in southeastern NC, swells generated by Chris will increase and affect portions of the coasts of North Carolina and the mid-Atlantic states during the next few days.

"Beryl's remnants should move away from Puerto Rico on Monday night, ending the threat of widespread heavy rainfall and gusty winds by early Tuesday", said meteorologist Chris Dolce. Additional strengthening is expected during the next couple of days, and Chris is forecast to become a hurricane later tonight or Tuesday morning.

The storm was expected to carry between six to 12 inches rain across the Lesser Antilles region, where the islands are still rebuilding from last year's devastating hurricane season.

Dennis Feltgen, a communications and public affairs officer for the NHC, told Newsweek that small-craft advisories have been issued along the coastline from the Carolinas to the Northeast.

The consistent southerly winds will keep morning showers and afternoon storms in the forecast throughout the work week. It wasnt projected to directly threaten land over the next few days, though forecasters said it could kick up risky surf and rip tides.

McNoldy noted the simultaneous presence of two July tropical storms, Beryl and Chris, hasnt happened since 2011, when Bret and Cindy roamed the Atlantic. There weren't any coastal watches or warnings as of early Monday.

Officials said 24,000 customers had already lost power across Puerto Rico and Gov. Ricardo Rossello urged people without sturdy roofs to move in with relatives or go to one of 14 government shelters that have opened.

At 11 a.m. EDT, the storm was centered about 150 miles (241 kilometers) south-southeast of Cape Hatteras with maximum sustained winds of 30 mph (48 kph).

"Hazardous sea conditions with significant wave heights of up to 2.4 to three metres or eight to 10 feet can be expected". Puerto Rico, which was devastated by Hurricane Maria in September, remains under a state of emergency. A NOAA Hurricane Hunter reported that winds were up to 50 miles per hour in the eastern semicircle and satellite data suggests the storm is quickly becoming more organized. The Hurricane Center declared Beryl as simply a remnant disturbance on Sunday since it weakened below tropical-depression strength.
