Hernando County issues alert on Hurricane Beryl

Hernando County issues alert on Hurricane Beryl

The National Hurricane Center said Tropical Storm Chris was about 210 miles south-southeast of Cape Hatteras, NC, in its 11 p.m. ET report.

Beryl could get even stronger over the next day or so, then weaken to a tropical storm or even a trough by the time it reaches Hispaniola, where impact with land and unfavorable conditions should destroy it. The storm is expected to become a tropical storm Saturday, the NHC said Friday night, with a "gradual strengthening expected through Monday".

On Saturday morning, the chance of tropical storm force winds lashing Puerto Rico was set at 20- to 30-percent, but the government is opening shelters as a precaution.

To the north, a tropical depression was in the Atlantic well off the North Carolina coast, and forecasters said there were no coastal watches or warnings in effect. On the forecast track, the centre of Beryl will remain east of the Lesser Antilles through Sunday.

The National Weather Service issued a flash-flood watch for Puerto Rico, warning of thunderstorms and wind gusts.

While Chris is not forecast to move over the next several days, Tropical Storm Beryl is moving west-northwestward toward the Lesser Antilles.

The center added that the French tourist islands of Martinique, Guadeloupe and St Barthelemy, as well as French-Dutch St Martin, were under tropical storm watch, meaning that tropical storm conditions were possible.

"People have to remain alert", Lojero told The Associated Press.

Though the storm is far from the strength of major Hurricanes Maria and Irma a year ago, Beryl still poses a threat of wind and rain to areas that have not fully recovered from those destructive storms.

Weather watchers also predict that there is a good possibility that Tropical Storm Chris will eventually find its way far north, laying down torrential rain and heavy winds on the Canadian provinces of Nova Scotia and Newfoundland and Labrador. It will most likely return to its tropical storm status by late Sunday or Monday as it approaches the Lesser Antilles. At 11 a.m., Tropical Depression Three had 30 miles per hour winds and was moving north at 2 miles per hour.

Meanwhile, a tropical disturbance off the North Carolina coast strengthened into a tropical depression Friday afternoon with winds of 30 miles per hour.
