This graphic from the National Hurricane Center shows the projected path of Tropical Storm Beryl on Sunday
On average, the third named storm forms August 14 and the second hurricane forms August 29, so Chris is keeping the season's activity well above par. Lourdes De Jesus, who traveled from West Springfield, Massachusetts, to help fix her mother's house in southeast Yabucoa, said the roof consists of tarp and recycled zinc and leaks even during a light storm.
Forecasters think the storm will not move much for the next day or so.
Maximum sustained winds are near 40 miles per hour (65 km/h) with higher gusts.
A third named Atlantic storm that formed off the North Carolina coast early on Sunday was forecast to become a hurricane on Monday, the U.S. National Hurricane Center said, while Tropical StormBeryl looked set to threaten Puerto Rico.
The territory could experience two to three inches or rain, and that height can be higher in some locations.
Puerto Rico, which was devastated by Hurricane Maria in September, remains under a state of emergency.
"There is a lot of uncertainty", she said. He said, however, that the recovery should be quicker since there are more power restoration crews and equipment on the island now. Outages were already reported across Puerto Rico early Monday as Gov. Ricardo Rossello urged people without sturdy roofs to move in with relatives or go to one of 14 government shelters that have opened. Some 60,000 people still have only tarps for roofs. "It is not the moment to panic, but it's the moment to prepare".
As Beryl approached, Puerto Rico, a USA territory, was still recovering from the devastation of Maria, which struck the island on September 20, 2017, as Category 4 hurricane with maximum wind speeds of 155 miles per hour.
The National Hurricane Center in Miami said Sunday that the storm has barely moved since Saturday but was likely to strengthen in the coming days.
According to WRAL meteorologist Elizabeth Gardner, even if Chris becomes a hurricane, its effects on the North Carolina coast will be minimal.
