Tropical Storm Chris to avoid New England

Rossello, who said the island could experience power outages, urged people without sturdy roofs to move in with relatives or a government shelter.

After the storm passes through the Caribbean early next week, "there appears to be an opportunity for the remnants of Beryl to regenerate into a tropical cyclone when the system moves through the Bahamas and into the southwestern Atlantic", the National Hurricane Center said.

Tropical Storm Chris is expected to strengthen and remain off the Carolinas' coast Sunday as Beryl weakened to remnants of a storm, according to the National Hurricane Center.

A state of emergency was in effect, the statement said. "The system can still cause a lot of damage regardless of whether it's a tropical storm or a hurricane". As a result, it is forecast to continue generating life-threatening waves and rip currents for the Mid-Atlantic beaches.

A tropical storm warning is up on Guadeloupe and Dominica, while a tropical storm watch has been issued for the French Caribbean territories of Martinique, St. Martin and St. Barts as well as St. Maarten, Barbados, St. Lucia, Saba and St. Eustatius.

Tropical Storm Chris was about 160 miles (257 km) south of Cape Hatteras in North Carolina with top sustained winds of 45 miles per hour (72 kph), the NHC said in an advisory.

After pushing across Dominica and moving into the Caribbean Sea the remnants of Beryl will encounter strong wind shear weakening the system even more but it still could produce some rainy weather with 30-40 miles per hour gusts for Puerto Rico and the Virgin Island late Monday and into Tuesday.

Although Chris is likely to remain offshore of the U.S. East Coast, it will still bring impacts for beachgoers.

National Weather Service meteorologist Carlos Anselmi told the AP that 1 to 2 inches (2.5 to 5 centimeters) of rain was expected across Puerto Rico, with double that in isolated areas. Swells generated by Chris are expected to increase and affect portions of the coasts of North Carolina and the mid-Atlantic states during the next few days.
