Chris, a tropical storm churning off the coast of the mid-Atlantic U.S. states, strengthened to become a hurricane on Tuesday and was not expected to make landfall over the U.S., the National Hurricane Center said.
The storm was almost stationary early on Tuesday as it churned about 200 miles (322 km) south-southeast of Cape Hatteras, North Carolina with maximum sustained winds of 70 miles per hour (110 km/h), the Miami-based weather forecaster said.
The national weather forecaster says the storm is now off the coast of Carolina and is expected to begin moving northeast later today. It was headed northeast at 10 miles per hour (16 kph).
Winds increase closer to the warm core in tropical systems while exratropical cyclones have high winds at greater distances from the storm center. Local officials were advised to monitor the storm's movement.
IMPACTS FROM CHRISWhile Chris won't bring us any direct impacts, swells generated by the storm will affect coastal portions of the Carolinas and the mid-Atlantic states for a few more days. These swells could cause life-threatening surf and rip current conditions. Tropical storm watches were in effect for Dominica and Guadeloupe.
