Chris is expected to become a Category 1 hurricane, meaning it will have sustained winds of at least 74 miles per hour and no more than 95 miles per hour.

Mainers can expect rip currents and high seas from Tropical Storm Chris this week, according to the National Weather Service.

Beachgoers in North Carolina should beware of unsafe rip currents as Tropical Storm Chris spins along the mid-Atlantic coast, Governor Roy Cooper warned on Monday after a man drowned in rough surf just north of Nags Head.

Tropical Storm Chris continues to strengthen to the south of Cape Hatteras in North Carolina.

The remnants of Beryl, the Atlantic season's first hurricane, brought heavy winds and rain to Puerto Rico resulting in power outages and mudslides in areas of the island still recovering from Hurricane Maria on Monday.

Before the storms arrived, forecasters warned residents in Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands that flooding was likely due to the torrential downpours. Basically, strong surface winds and larger ocean waves mix the surface waters with cooler, deeper waters resulting in reduced potential energy and thereby place a "cap" on how strong the tropical cyclone can develop.

However, the NHC said this might not be the end of Beryl.

Meteorologist Marshall Alexander told The Associated Press that officials were anxious about those living with tarps on their roofs after Maria slammed into Dominica as a Category 5 storm previous year, killing dozens of people. High surf and risky rip currents are expected to spread from the North Carolina coast to New England for several days.

Many North Carolina beaches are closed to swimming due to heavy surf and unsafe rip currents caused by Tropical Storm Chris.

There will be little impact to the Grand Strand even if Tropical Storm Chris turns into a hurricane as it moves north through the next couple of days. Gov. Ricardo Rossello urged people without sturdy roofs to move in with relatives or to one of 24 government shelters. Deeper into the Caribbean, a state of emergency was declared in Puerto Rico, where Maria caused more than an estimated $100 billion in damage. It also dumped torrential rain in the U.S. Virgin Island of St. Croix, with the National Weather Service warning of high winds and fallen trees and light posts.
