Hurricane Beryl first of Atlantic season

Beryl becomes first hurricane of the 2018 Atlantic season Hurricane Beryl could hit parts of the Caribbean

Beryl, a tiny, fast-moving storm, will likely be a hurricane when it reaches Caribbean islands over the weekend hit hard by Hurricane Maria a year ago.

At 11a.m., Hurricane Beryl was located near latitude 10.7 degrees north and longitude 46.5 degrees west or about 913 miles east south-east of Dominica.

Hurricane Beryl lost some strength overnight but is still packing maximum-sustained winds of 75 miles per hour as it moves toward the Caribbean.

Beryl weakened back into a tropical storm after becoming the first hurricane of the 2018 season.

The storm is expected to encounter a hostile environment over the weekend and on Monday once it reaches the Caribbean Sea.

"Confidence in the official intensity forecast is also much lower than normal", the National Hurricane Center said when issue a warning on July 6.

If the tropical disturbance remains off the Carolina coast, it not expected to have any impact on New Jersey's coast, said Trent Davis, a meteorologist at the National Weather Service's regional forecast office in Mount Holly. Across the remainder of the Leeward and Windward Islands, the Virgin Islands, and Puerto Rico, rainfall amounts of 1 to 2 inches with locally higher amounts are expected. "Guidance continues to suggest that the forecast tropical-storm-force winds associated with the cyclone will not reach the US coast", the hurricane center said. It is likely that the system becomes Tropical Storm Chris on Saturday and possibly reach hurricane strength early next week.

In 2013, Peabody Award judges honoured Bourdain and " Parts Unknown " for "expanding our palates and horizons in equal measure". He began dating actress Asia Argento in early 2017 and publicly supported Argento after she accused Harvey Weinstein of rape .


Beryl's relatively small size (as of Friday morning) has helped the system organize and develop quickly, but it also makes it vulnerable to hostile atmospheric conditions.

Beryl has winds of 80 miles per hour and was moving to the west at 15 miles per hour.

- Beryl may bring tropical storm or hurricane conditions to the Windward Islands Sunday night. It is expected to weaken after Sunday to a tropical storm. This system looks to meander in the Atlantic between the Carolinas and Bermuda over the next few days.

The National Hurricane Center is giving this system an 80 percent chance for development through the weekend.

- Regardless, areas of locally heavy rain and gusty winds are possible as far west as Hispañola.
