Puerto Rico expects heavy rain from Beryl remnants

Puerto Rico expects heavy rain from Beryl remnants

Tropical Storm Chris, spinning well of the Carolina coast, is expected to grow into hurricane, perhaps late Monday night or early Tuesday, according to the National Hurricane Center.

Chris had top winds of 60 miles per hour (95 kph) at 5 a.m. Monday, and was expected to remain almost stationary through Tuesday before moving northeastward as a hurricane.

"Swells generated by Chris are expected to increase and affect portions of the coasts of North Carolina and the mid-Atlantic states into early next week", the advisory said, adding that some of the resulting conditions could be life-threatening.

Updated to give latest on remnants of Beryl and forecast for Tropical Storm Chris as of Tuesday morning.

The first Atlantic hurricane of the 2018 season, Beryl posed a threat to islands that have not fully recovered from major Hurricanes Irma and Maria past year, though its strength paled in comparison.

It is still expected to bring rain and gusty winds to Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands.

Tropical Storm Chris is shown off the eastern coast of North and SC, U.S., in this satellite image July 9, 2018 at 16:12 UTC. It also dumped torrential rain in the U.S. Virgin Island of St. Croix, with the National Weather Service warning of high winds and fallen trees and light posts. For now, it could bring high surf and a rip current threat to the Carolina coast.

"Our hope is that we get a little rain", he said Sunday night.

The National Hurricane Center in Miami said Sunday that the storm was likely to strengthen.

If Chris does become a hurricane, it would be the second this month - a relatively rare occurrence in July.

Meanwhile, Tropical Storm Chris continues to spin off of the coast of the Carolinas.

The governor urged people without sturdy roofs to move to one of the 424 shelters that the government planned to open across the island.

"The main hazards will be torrential rainfall and strong, gusty winds", which could reach 45 miles per hour, the National Weather Service in San Juan said.

The hurricane center said there was a possibility that Beryls remnants could regenerate into a tropical cyclone in a few days while moving across the Bahamas.
