Tropical Storm Chris brings SC swimming warnings

Tropical Storm Chris brings SC swimming warnings

The Category 5 hurricane caused damages estimated at more than $100 billion, killed dozens of people by the most conservative estimates and destroyed up to 75 per cent of Puerto Rico's electricity transmission lines. 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.

"We're still not ready to receive another storm", said 17-year-old Ruben Del Moral, who lives in the southeast coastal town of Yabucoa, the first town hit by Hurricane Maria last September.

"The entire government of Puerto Rico is on alert for the passage of Beryl's remnants, and heavy rain is expected in the local area", Ricardo Rossello, governor of the USA territory, wrote on Facebook.

The storm was expected to produce 1 inch to 3 inches of rain over Newfoundland as it headed northeast, with possible isolated accumulations of 6 inches. Nonetheless, tropical storm warnings are in place for Dominica and Guadeloupe. Tropical storm force winds extend outward up to 70 miles from the center.

Though less powerful than before, the storm brought 2 to 4 inches of heavy rain and gusty winds to southeast Puerto Rico on Monday.

Tropical Storm Chris is almost stationary, nearly 150 miles off the NC coast, and is expected to meander off the coast, over the warm Gulf Stream until drifting northeast Tuesday and Wednesday. Besides high seas and rip currents along the North Carolina and mid-Atlantic coasts, Chris is not a threat to the continental United States.

Dominica Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit had warned people to respect an island-wide curfew and remain indoors.

Marshall Alexander, with Dominica's Meteorological Service, told The Associated Press that no landslides or widespread flooding have been reported.

Olga Herrera Carrasquillo and Ramon Llanos Arboleda, who live together in Humacao in the southeastern region of Puerto Rico, said FEMA installed a blue tarp over their roof to protect what little they had left.

Lugo lost his roof and two walls to Maria and was waiting for volunteers to secure his new roof before Beryl.

Chris is now 195 miles south-southeast of Cape Hatteras, NC, with maximum sustained winds of 60 mph.

Tropical Storm Beryl is moving rapidly westward toward the Lesser Antilles at the eastern entrance of the Caribbean Sea. It needs to be noted that environmental conditions are conducive to the tropical system reforming as it moves across the Bahamas and the western Atlantic over the next few days.
