The National Weather Service issued a flash-flood watch for Puerto Rico, warning of thunderstorms and wind gusts.

Along the North Carolina coast, rip currents and heavy surf continue to be the main threats from this storm.

Tropical Storm Chris was upgraded to hurricane status Tuesday after it increased in speed and strength as forecasters warned that it would bring unsafe rip currents to the Jersey Shore this week.

Furthermore, Cardin says, there are a host of other issues that Americans need to worry about should Trump get his way. Pence met with Kavanaugh, 53, earlier in the day on Capitol Hill, along with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell .

Storm Chris is set to hit the United Kingdom with gales, cooler temperatures and damper weather, threatening to end Britain's heatwave. A tropical storm becomes a hurricane when its top sustained winds reach 74 miles per hour (120 kph). "Little development is expected during the next day or so due to land interaction and unfavorable upper-level winds".

"As it tracks towards Newfoundland, it will diminish from a hurricane to a post-tropical storm, but it will still be very strong, and it will still be a significant storm at that point", Hubbard said in an interview from Halifax.

Environment Canada meteorologist Ian Hubbard said the storm was off the coast of Carolina on Tuesday and was expected to intensify as it started moving northeast later in the day. Even if it doesn't strengthen back into a tropical storm, forecasters said winds and rain could be expected in Hispaniola and the Bahamas. It's expected to remain "well offshore" of the USA coast, forecasters say, instead steadily heading for Newfoundland while picking up forward speed through Thursday night.
