Beryl dissipates, TS Chris strengthens; more rain forecast in Orlando area

The remnant of Tropical Storm Beryl has rushed over Dominica but then dissipated, lessening the threat to Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands, which had braced for heavy rains and strong winds less than a year after being battered by hurricanes. Lourdes De Jesus, who travelled from West Springfield, Massachusetts, to help fix her mother's house in southeast Yabucoa, said the roof consists of tarp and recycled zinc and leaks even during a light storm. "Definitely, we were spared the worst", he said.

Maximum sustained winds are near 40 miles per hour (65 km/h) with higher gusts.

Tropical Storm Chris continues to spin just off the North Carolina coast and is now centered roughly 150 miles to the south of Cape Hatteras, North Carolina.

Beryl is expected to produce total rain of 2 to 3 inches through Tuesday across the Leeward and the Virgin Islands, as well as Puerto Rico. The storm hasn't moved much through the last day or so - and it's not expected to move much in the next day or so - but it is expected to strengthen into a hurricane sometime mid-week.

"There is a lot of uncertainty", she said.

Rossello told reporters the island would probably experience power outages, given that its electricity grid has become more vulnerable since Hurricane Maria. Some 60,000 people still have only tarps for roofs.

Puerto Rico Health Secretary Rafael Rodriguez urged all those with serious health conditions, including diabetics, to seek shelter at health facilities, which have generators.

The storm was far enough out to sea that no coastal watches or warnings were put into effect, even for the closest point of land, Cape Hatteras, North Carolina.

"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", the National Hurricane Center said.
