Maximum sustained winds have increased to near 105 miles per hour, and it will likely continue to strengthen through Wednesday morning. Its center will be near southeastern Newfoundland on Thursday night.

Chris is forecast to gather strength through Wednesday, but should start weakening by Thursday and revert back to a tropical storm by Friday, according to the NHC.

Many North Carolina beaches were closed to swimming on Monday due to heavy surf and risky rip currents, according to a statement from the governor's office.

It took it a few days, but Tropical Storm Chris strengthened into a hurricane Tuesday as it started to move away from the US coast.

You should also make sure your hurricane supply kit is stocked and ready to use in case of power lose or flash flooding.

Chris was speeding northeastward in the Atlantic and is expected to continue to weaken and lose its tropical features.
