'Disorganized' Tropical Storm Beryl moving a little faster, but blowing no harder

Canada's national forecaster says the Maritimes could be in the path of a tropical storm that formed off the USA coast Sunday morning.

Chris formed off the coast of North Carolina on Friday and is now about 160 miles off the coast of Cape Hatteras.

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.

Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 60 miles from the center.

The NHC forecasts the storm to meander off the coast for the next several days. Martinique, St. Martin, and St. Barthelemy; Saba and St. Eustatius; and St. Maarten remain on a tropical storm watch.

If the request is approved, Mar-a-Lago will be allowed to employ the workers from October 2018 until May 2019. The seasonal workers would be required to return to their home country once their H-2B visas expire.

The National Hurricane Center in Miami said Sunday that the storm has barely moved since Saturday but was likely to strengthen in the coming days.

Through Tuesday, Beryl is forecast to dump two to three inches of rain on the Leeward Islands, which separate the northeastern Caribbean Sea from the western Atlantic Ocean and include Guadeloupe and Dominica.

Meanwhile, tropical storm Beryl was located about 240 miles east of Barbados, packing maximum sustained winds of 45 mph, the NHC said early Sunday. On the forecast track, the center of Beryl will approach the Lesser Antilles today, cross the island chain tonight, and move near or south of the Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico on Monday.

Tropical Storm Chris, which continues to linger off the North Carolina coast, is expected to become a hurricane on Monday.

A flash-flood watch was in effect for Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands from late Sunday through Monday evening, NWS San Juan said on Twitter.
