A flash-flood watch was in effect for Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands from late Sunday through Monday evening, NWS San Juan said on Twitter.

As Beryl approached, Puerto Rico, a USA territory, was still recovering from the devastation of Maria, which struck the island on September 20, 2017, as Category 4 hurricane with maximum wind speeds of 155 miles per hour.

While the storm was not expected to make landfall as of Sunday afternoon, it will bring "life threatening" rough surf and risky rip currents along the East Coast, the weather service said.

The remnants of Tropical Storm Beryl are moving west-northwestward at 26 miles per hour toward the Lesser Antilles, according to the 5 p.m. EDT post.

Although Chris is likely to remain offshore of the U.S. East Coast, it will still bring impacts for beachgoers.

Forecasters said conditions somewhat conducive for regeneration of a tropical cyclone are expected as Beryl is forecast to move across the Bahamas and the western Atlantic.
