Chris strengthens to hurricane: U.S. NHC

Beryl the last white mass of clouds slightly up and right of center passing into the Caribbean early Monday morning

On Tuesday, Environment Canada said the storm is expected to track south of Nova Scotia at hurricane strength on Thursday and then reach southeastern Newfoundland on Friday as a post-tropical storm.

The storm was almost stationary early on Tuesday as it churned about 200 miles (322 km) south-southeast of Cape Hatteras, North Carolina with maximum sustained winds of 70 miles per hour (110 km/h), the Miami-based weather forecaster said.

Along the North Carolina coast, rip currents and heavy surf continue to be the main threats from this storm. Eye formation is typically an indication of winds reaching the minimum hurricane threshold at 74 miles per hour.

The Florida-based weather forecaster said some additional strengthening was forecast for Tuesday night and Wednesday.

The remnants of Beryl looked set on Monday to bring 2 to 4 inches (5-10 cm) of rain to Puerto Rico, which is still trying to recover from hurricanes that walloped the USA territory a year ago, causing an estimated $90 billion in damage. It's far enough out in the ocean that there are no coastal watches or warnings in effect. Looks like another storm right next to Tropical Storm Chris, but it won't ever get named and here's why. Peak wind speeds may reach 90 miles per hour, it added.

About 7,000 houses and businesses in Puerto Rico still lack power after Maria leveled an electricity grid that was ill-maintained before the storm.
