Tropical storm Chris reaches hurricane strength as it heads north toward Newfoundland

11 July 2018

Tropical Storm Chris was expected to become a hurricane on Tuesday and create risky swells along the coast of North Carolina and mid-Atlantic states, the National Hurricane Center said. The National Hurricane Center's advisory stated Hurricane Chris was located about 200 miles southeast of Cape Hatteras, North Carolina and was moving in a northeastern direction at 10 mph.

The national weather forecaster says the storm is now off the coast of Carolina and is expected to begin moving northeast later today.

An Air Force Reserve Reconnaissance aircraft is scheduled to fly over Chris Tuesday afternoon.

France withstood nine shots from Belgium as Hugo Lloris kept a clean sheet, and Deschamps credited his side's effort at the back. Yet it is England's creative, dynamic and intelligent midfield that will need to be on the top of its game against Croatia.

The National Hurricane Center also advised interests along the coast of North Carolina and in Atlantic Canada should monitor the progress of Hurricane Chris. Still, the storm is expected to be upgraded to a hurricane later Tuesday as it moves into warmer waters. Local officials were preparing to deal with any minor flooding or overwash.

It could strengthen to a category 1 hurricane by early Wednesday morning, but is not expected to make landfall anywhere in the U.S. They will get rip currents and swells. Tropical storm watches were in effect for Dominica and Guadeloupe. Chris is expected to travel south of Nova Scotia, Canada.
