Schroeter said that while the storm is expected to become a hurricane, it's far off the coast and isn't expected to make landfall in the USA, though it may reach land in eastern Nova Scotia and Newfoundland later this week.

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. Chris is expected to strengthen by Monday night, and become a hurricane by Tuesday, according to the NHC.

Beryl disintegrated as a tropical storm shortly before crossing over Dominica, which is still rebuilding more than nine months after Hurricane Maria killed dozens of people.

Chris is forecast to become a hurricane on Monday and additional strengthening is expected into Tuesday. The storm was forecast to degenerate into a low-pressure system by Monday before reaching seas just south of Puerto Rico, which was devastated by Hurricane Maria in September.

Tropical Storm Beryl is moving rapidly westward toward the Lesser Antilles at the eastern entrance of the Caribbean Sea. "Depending on the speed of the storm, some areas may get significant amounts of rainfall in a relatively short period of time and that flash flooding associated with very heavy rain can certainly be a hazard".

The governor also urged people without sturdy roofs to move to one of the 424 shelters.

The hurricane center said Beryls remnant had maximum sustained winds of 40 miles per hour (65 kph) late Sunday and was moving west-northwestward at 26 miles per hour (43 kph).

Lugo lost his roof and two walls to Maria and was waiting for volunteers to secure his new roof before Beryl.

The second named storm of this year's hurricane season is now "meandering" off the Carolinas, says an advisory issued early Monday morning by the US hurricane centre. It is 60 miles northeast of Martinique and 70 miles east-southeast of Dominica.
