Hurricane force winds for a Category 1 storm are 74 to 95 miles per hour.

As some East Coast residents gear up for Tropical Storm Chris, New Englanders can rest easy knowing the storm will avoid the area, forecasters said.

While there are no current coastal watches or warnings in effect, these swells could cause life-threatening surf and rip-current conditions.

The hurricane center said Beryl's remnant had maximum sustained winds of 40 miles per hour (65 kph) late Sunday and was moving west-northwestward at 26 miles per hour (43 kph).

May calls for cabinet unity over Brexit before meeting
The influential Brexiteer has written a column for the Telegraph newspaper in which he appears to make a veiled threat to the Prime Minister.

Chris has the potential to strengthen into a hurricane because of warm sea surface temperatures and favourable winds. Martinique, St. Martin, and St. Barthelemy; Saba and St. Eustatius; and St. Maarten remain on a tropical storm watch.

A third named Atlantic storm that formed off the North Carolina coast early on Sunday was forecast to become a hurricane on Monday, the U.S. National Hurricane Center said, while Tropical Storm Beryl looked set to threaten Puerto Rico.

In the Caribbean, a tropical storm warning was up on Guadeloupe and Dominica and long lines were reported at grocery stores on several islands as people shopped for food and water.

Meanwhile, Tropical Storm Beryl - the second named storm of this season - is expected to dump heavy rain over the Lesser Antilles at the end of the weekend.

Selam would have been similar in size to a chimpanzee that was about the same age - which meant she also depended on her mother. This research has shed a lot of light on how three and a half-year-old toddlers lived 3 million years ago in the past.

WIND: Gusty winds up to 26 knots/30 miles per hour can be expected Sunday night through Monday with occasional higher gusts.

The storm was expected to move toward the U.S. Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico, or just south of those areas, on Monday.

The forecast predicts two to three inches of rain through Tuesday for Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands and the Leeward Islands.

It is said Beryl will "degenerate into a trough of low pressure" as it moves into the eastern caribbean sea by Monday.
