Hurricane Beryl bearing down on Lesser Antilles

"As a result, the new NHC intensity forecast calls for little change in strength during the next 24-36 [hours], but predicts steady weakening after that time". Beryl is on a steady path heading west at 15 miles per hour, with maximum sustained winds recorded at 80 miles per hour, according to the National Hurricane Center's 11 a.m. advisory on Friday.

The hurricane is expected to move west to west-northwestward over the weekend and into the early part of the work week, according to the NHC's official forecast path.

Beryl is expected to gain speed and move in a west-northwesterly direction through the weekend, and the weak Category 1 storm is expected to strengthen Friday, the hurricane center said. The storm's sustained winds were at 74 miles per hour.

The National Hurricane Center described the storm as "Tiny Beryl".

Puerto Rico, which just finished restoring power to all of its municipalities on July 1 - 284 days after Maria made landfall - is simply not ready for another storm. Beryl was moving toward the west near 14 miles per hour.

A disturbance is being watched off the southeastern United States coast. It remains far out in the Atlantic Ocean and is not expected to make much impact to the USA, or even Florida.

The hurricane might not weaken substantially until it gets near Hispaniola and the central Caribbean Sea, the hurricane center said in its latest storm advisory. Additional watch areas may be required for other islands later today.

The first named storm of the 2018 Atlantic hurricane season, subtropical storm Alberto, failed to reach hurricane status.

Beryl formed on Jul. 5 and became a hurricane a day later.

Beryl's impact on Haiti isn't clear as of Saturday morning.

Updates on the storm's progression can be found online and NWS is advising residents in the Coastal Carolinas to monitor the storm.

Hurricane-force winds extend outward up to 10 miles from the centre, and tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 35 miles, the DDM said.

Still, the size of the storm has weather watchers on alert. "The hurricane center cautioned those along the coast in North and SC to continue to monitor the system, which has an 80 percent chance of becoming a tropical depression over the next few days", Alabama.com reported on July 6.
