Hurricane Beryl loses some strength, now with 75 miles per hour winds

Posted July 09, 2018

Should it become a tropical depression or a more serious storm, though, it is (at present) far enough out in the Atlantic that it does not seem to present any threat to land.

More summer storms are expected across Central Florida on Thursday, a day after a tornado touched down in Tavares, causing damage.

Tropical Storm Beryl is moving rapidly westward toward the Lesser Antilles at the eastern entrance of the Caribbean Sea.

Still, the remnants of the storm should bring locally heavy rains and gusty winds to portions of the U.S. Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico on Sunday and Monday, the hurricane center said.

Beryl is due to reach that zone sometime late Sunday, the hurricane center said, at which point it's likely to weaken into a tropical depression.

It is now 240 miles east of Barbados and 340 miles east of Martinique. "The cold water could have profound impacts on this year's hurricane season, since warm water is the fuel source for tropical storms".

At 11 a.m. EDT (1500 UTC), the center of Tropical Depression Two was located near latitude 10.2 degrees north and longitude 41.4 degrees west.

Another tropical wave, known as Invest 96-L, near Bermuda may also become a depression or a storm by next week, according to the National Hurricane Center.

At 5 p.m. the centre of Tropical Storm Beryl was located near latitude 10.3 North, longitude 42.8 West. Beryl is moving toward the west near 16 miles per hour (26 km/h).

Puerto Rico Gov. Ricardo Rossello said in a press conference late Saturday that the island could experience power outages and urged people without sturdy roofs to move in with relatives or a government shelter. The small storm is expected to encounter wind shear as early as Sunday, allowing for the storm to weaken.

The second disturbance worthy of being watched is a weaker one south of the island of Bermuda in the western Atlantic.

The next hurricane advisory is scheduled for 5 p.m. Sunday.

Dominican Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit told residents to store water because the government would shut down the water system as a precaution.
