Beachgoers beware: Hurricane Chris sending risky surf ashore

What's left of Tropical Storm Beryl has a 50 percent chance of redeveloping into a tropical depression over the next few days as it moves into the Bahamas

The storm, once the second hurricane of 2018 in the Atlantic, weakened to a tropical storm on Thursday morning with 70 miles per hour winds.

In the United States, forecasters said Wednesday that beachgoers on the Atlantic coast should be wary of heavy surf and life-threatening rip-currents as Chris swirled off the U.S. East Coast. Chris is expected to produce total rain accumulations of 1 to 3 inches (25 to 75 millimeters) over Newfoundland, with possible isolated maximum amounts of 6 inches (150 millimeters). AccuWeather reports that a man in Kill Devil Hills, North Carolina died after he ignored "No Swimming" signs posted along the beach and encountered rough surf. Yesterday, 141 rescues were performed in Ocean City, Maryland, due to rough surf and unsafe rip currents. Beryl is not expected to track close enough to the US coast to bring significant rain or wind, AccuWeather hurricane expert Dan Kottlowski said.

The north and southwest Avalon Peninsula are forecast to get between 40 and 70 millimetres of rain, with the heaviest rainfall coming Thursday afternoon and evening.

Earliest arrival time of Tropical-Storm-force winds as of July 11, 2018 at 2:00 p.m.
