  • Rain and storm winds blowing trees

Environment Canada has issued a statement for Nova Scotia and parts of P.E.I. and New Brunswick, saying they could be in the path of a tropical storm that formed off the USA coast Sunday morning.

"On this present position and the latest available forecast track Tropical Storm Beryl no longer poses a direct threat to Barbados".

Beryl weakened to a tropical storm from a hurricane on Saturday and was forecast to lose more strength toward the end of Sunday.

Chris was stationary about 180 miles south-southeast of Cape Hatteras, N.C. with maximum sustained winds of 50 mph, according to the NHC 5 p.m. EDT advisory.

Forecasters think the storm will not move much for the next day or so.

The hurricane center said most forecast models are on board with this scenario, but some take Chris away from the US faster than others.

They've issued a statement for all of Nova Scotia and parts of P.E.I. and New Brunswick.

A number of beaches along the Outer Banks on Sunday are not open for swimmers.

SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico (AP) - Gusty winds began to hit the eastern Caribbean on Sunday as Tropical Storm Beryl advanced rapidly toward a region struggling to recover from last year's deadly hurricanes.

At 6pm today, Chris was 571 miles west of Bermuda, with winds of about 52mph and higher gusts.

After the storm passes through the Caribbean early next week, "there appears to be an opportunity for the remnants of Beryl to regenerate into a tropical cyclone when the system moves through the Bahamas and into the southwestern Atlantic", the National Hurricane Center said.

As of Sunday, Beryl was producing maximum sustained winds of 45 miles per hour with higher gusts.

High surf and unsafe rip currents are expected along parts of the Carolina and mid-Atlantic coasts through early week.

There were no coastal storm watches or warnings issued early Sunday and the storm was expected to meander off the Carolinas for the next few days.

Forecasters said conditions could become a bit more favorable for the storm to regenerate later this week.
