Tropical Storm Chris continues to spin off North Carolina coast

So in the satellite above, the hole in the middle of the clouds is the center of Tropical Storm Chris, which is about to become a hurricane.

North Carolina Gov. Roy Cooper warned beachgoers on Monday to beware of risky rip currents after an unidentified man in his mid-60s drowned just north of Nags Head when he was caught in a rough surf current caused by the storm. The hurricane is expected to strenghten over the next two days.

The storm was almost stationary early on Tuesday as it churned about 200 miles (322 km) south-southeast of Cape Hatteras, North Carolina with maximum sustained winds of 70 miles per hour (110 km/h), the Miami-based weather forecaster said. With winds of 85mph, the storm is between North Carolina and Bermuda.

Chris is starting to move northeast around 9 miles per hour. It's far enough out in the ocean that there are no coastal watches or warnings in effect. Hurricane Beryl was the first.

Puerto Rico Governor Ricardo Rossello said the territory had opened more than 40 evacuation shelters for those in need.
