  • Tropical Depression, Hurricane Both Spinning Out in the Atlantic

There are no coastal watches or warnings in effect.

The National Weather Service is reporting the tropical storm could turn into a hurricane as it moves northeast Monday night and picks up speed. The storm's remnants crossed directly over the island with top sustained winds of 40 miles per hour (65 kph), and was expected to drop up to 3 inches (8 centimetres) of rain, with as much as 5 inches (13 centimetres) in isolated spots.

Beryl is then expected to weaken, with its post-tropical remnants charting a course for Puerto Rico and following a somewhat similar path through the Caribbean as 2017's Hurricane Maria.

Beryl disintegrated as a tropical storm shortly before crossing over Dominica, which is still rebuilding more than nine months after Hurricane Maria killed dozens of people.

"We are saddened that rough waters have tragically claimed a life, and I urge people along our coast to be cautious, especially if they plan to be in and on the water", Gov. Roy Cooper said in a statement Monday.

The forecast predicts two to three inches of rain through Tuesday for Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands and the Leeward Islands. Additional strengthening is expected during the next couple of days, and Chris is forecast to become a hurricane later tonight or Tuesday morning.

Long lines were reported outside grocery stores on the islands of Dominica, Puerto Rico and other islands as people stock up on food and water, AP reported.

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. It was moving north-northwest at 2 miles per hour (3 kph).
