Tropical Storm Beryl moving closer to eastern Caribbean

Two tropical storms now in the Atlantic.

Meteorologist Marshall Alexander told The Associated Press that officials were anxious about people still living with tarps on their roofs after Hurricane Maria slammed into Dominica as a Category 5 storm previous year, killing dozens of people.

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 Depression Three has strengthened to Tropical Storm Chris off the coast of North Carolina Sunday morning. It wasn't projected to directly threaten land over the next few days, though forecasters said it could kick up unsafe surf and rip tides. Even so, Puerto Rico Gov. Ricardo Rossello declared a state of emergency for the island on Friday. It forms when sea temperatures in the tropical Pacific are warmer than average, and cause higher speed, high-level winds across the southern United States, reducing tropical storm formation.

The new forecast predicts 11 named storms, four hurricanes, one of which would be major.

Tropical Storm Chris was expected to remain well off the US coast, and the latest projections show it possibly making landfall in Nova Scotia late Wednesday or early Thursday.

The Colorado team now estimates that the rest of 2018 will see additional 4 hurricanes (median is 6.5), 10 named storms (median is 12.0), 41.50 named storm days (median is 60.1), 15 hurricane days (median is 21.3), 1 major (Category 3-4-5) hurricane (median is 2.0) and 2 major hurricane days (median is 3.9).

When reports of an alleged altercation were first raised earlier this year, director Brad Furman defended Depp. Brooks says that the famed actor hired two of his friends for a scene in the flick in April of past year .

The National Hurricane Center in Miami say the storm's winds had strengthened to 40 miles per hour (65 kph) by Thursday afternoon.

"I'm praying for all the brothers who are still living under a plastic roof", said Alfonso Lugo in the southeastern Puerto Rico town of Humacao.

"As is the case with all hurricane seasons, coastal residents are reminded that it only takes one hurricane making landfall to make it an active season for them".

It is barely moving with no significant motion expected in the next day.

Though the storm's intensity could still fluctuate unpredictably, its chances of regaining hurricane strength before reaching the Lesser Antilles, the arc of islands from the US Virgin Islands to Grenada, have dropped significantly, CNN meteorologists said.

The center of Tropical Storm Fabio was located near latitude 20.2 degrees north and longitude 125.4 degrees west. Fabio was moving toward the northwest near 17 miles per hour (28 kph).

It is now 240 miles east of Barbados and 340 miles east of Martinique.
