A tropical storm warning is already in effect for that area, with hurricane conditions possible beginning on Tuesday.

The Bermuda Weather Service warned it may move closer after that, depending upon its track.

The storm was expected to strengthen to a hurricane by about 8 a.m. on Monday.

Buttrick said local impacts may include building seas and an increased risk for rip currents, but strong winds and rainfall won't be a concern.

Puerto Rico also suffered widespread damage from Hurricane Maria, and Gov. Ricardo Rossello had anxious the island could experience power outages if Beryl arrived as a tropical storm as originally forecast.

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.

The Atlantic hurricane season, which runs from June 1 to November 30, spared Bermuda previous year, but battered the Caribbean as well as the United States.


At 11a.m. Tropical Storm Beryl was located about 130 miles or 210 kilometres northeast of Barbados.

Tropical storm watches were in effect for Barbados, St. Lucia and Dominica.

Its maximum sustained wind speeds were at 45 miles per hour.

Tropical Storm Chris formed off a tropical depression along the Carolinas' coast early Sunday morning as Beryl remained a storm, according to the National Hurricane Center. Gradual weakening is forecast during the next 48 hours, and Beryl is forecast to degenerate into a trough of low pressure as it moves across the eastern Caribbean Sea on Monday.

Those living near Puerto Rico's south coast were wary of the rain forecast, since they were the first ones hit by Maria and saw some of the biggest damage.

About 7,000 houses and businesses in Puerto Rico still lack power after Hurricane Maria leveled an electricity grid that was ill-maintained before the storm.
