First Atlantic hurricane puts Dominica on alert

Michael Lowry, an atmospheric scientists with the Federal Emergency Management Agency, noted that wind shear over the Caribbean Sea was abnormally strong in June, taking on the overall look of a hurricane season feeling the effects of a developing El Niño, TWC said.

As of 5 p.m. ET Thursday, Beryl had winds of 50 miles per hour and was moving to the west at 16 miles per hour. Martinique, St. Martin, and St. Barthelemy; Saba and St. Eustatius; and St. Maarten remain on a tropical storm watch.

The system continues to become better organized, the NHC said, predicting a tropical depression is likely to form during the next day or two while the system moves westward to west-northwestward at 15 to 20 miles per hour over the tropical Atlantic Ocean.

About 7,000 houses and businesses in Puerto Rico still lack power after Hurricane Maria leveled an electricity grid that was ill-maintained before the storm.

Dominican Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit told people to store water because the government would be shutting down the water system as a protective measure, and he warned them to stay alert despite's the storm weakening.

Scientists at Colorado State University's Tropical Meteorology Project have decreased their forecast and now believe that 2018 hurricane season will have below-average activity.

Tropical Storm Chris is now 150 miles south of Cape Hatteras, NC, with maximum sustained winds of 40 mph.

Tropical Storm Beryl continues to weaken as it nears the Lesser Antilles.

The NHC further stated that the disturbance is expected to move west-northwestward for at least another day, passing over the Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico during the day, and over Hispaniola in the night. The storm is located about 1,330 miles (2,140 kms) southeast of the Lesser Antilles.
