Tropical Storm Chris tracking towards Atlantic Canada

- Tropical Storm Chris has been churning in the Atlantic Ocean for a few days, and although it is expected to gain hurricane strength, it is not expected to make landfall in the U.S.

Though those in coastal North Carolina and Canada should continue to monitor Chris as it tracks northeast at near 9 miles per hour, no coastal watches or warnings are now in effect, the NHC said.

North Carolina Governor Roy Cooper warned beachgoers on Monday to beware of unsafe rip currents after an unidentified man in his mid-60s drowned in rough surf just north of Nags Head when he was caught in a rough surf current caused by the storm.

Chris is moving in a northeasterly direction at 2 miles per hour.

Morning Roundup: Sagan wins 2nd stage of Tour de France
The Taupo rider Patrick Bevan has helped his American outfit BMC Racing to victory on the third stage, a 35.5km team time trial. The 28-year-old Sagan said this win means that "I'm really back" following his disqualification from the 2017 Tour.

There were no coastal watching or warnings in effect as of Tuesday afternoon.

The remnants of Beryl looked set on Monday to bring 2 to 4 inches (5-10 cm) of rain to Puerto Rico, which is still trying to recover from hurricanes that walloped the US territory a year ago, causing an estimated $90 billion in damage. Still, the storm is expected to be upgraded to a hurricane later Tuesday as it moves into warmer waters.

It also issued a flash-flood watch for the U.S. Virgin Islands through Monday evening.
