After pushing across Dominica and moving into the Caribbean Sea the remnants of Beryl will encounter strong wind shear weakening the system even more but it still could produce some rainy weather with 30-40 miles per hour gusts for Puerto Rico and the Virgin Island late Monday and into Tuesday.

As of 5 p.m. Sunday, Chris remained stationary and was not expected to move in the next few days.

Dominica Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit urged people to stay inside and observe a curfew. Government officials had said they were most anxious about those still living with tarps on their roofs.

As some East Coast residents gear up for Tropical Storm Chris, New Englanders can rest easy knowing the storm will avoid the area, forecasters said.

It has been a mostly stationary storm so far, sustaining maximum wind speeds close to 45 miles per hour, but is expected to remain "well offshore" of the US coast. He urged people without sturdy roofs to move in with relatives or to one of 24 government shelters. More than 1,500 power customers remain in the dark more than nine months after Maria, and some 60,000 people still have only tarps for roofs.

The same amount, two to three inches, was also expected to fall on the U.S. Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico, with up to five inches possible in some areas, through Tuesday.

Flooding is a big concern for those still living in homes that have not been fully rebuilt since Maria. Lourdes De Jesus, who traveled from West Springfield, Massachusetts, to help fix her mother's house in southeast Yabucoa, said the roof consists of tarp and recycled zinc and leaks even during a light storm. It is now a minimal tropical storm, with peak winds of 40 miles per hour.

They say storm could attain hurricane status by late Tuesday or early Wednesday.

Chris, the third storm of the 2018 Atlantic hurricane season, was named Sunday morning as it gained strength off the coast of the Carolinas.
