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

N.H.C. said this morning that interests elsewhere in the Leeward Islands, the Virgin Islands, Puerto Rico, and the Dominican Republic should monitor the progress of Beryl.

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.

As Beryl approached, Puerto Rico, a US 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.

They say the Canadian Hurricane Centre is monitoring the situation and that updates will be issued as more information becomes available.

Barbadians can breathe a sigh of relief, as the island is no longer under Tropical Storm Watch.

After his appearance at UFC last night , WWE have released a statement about Lesnar - and it all seems a little bit odd. Cormier (21-1) flattened the UFC's long-reigning heavyweight champ with a right elbow out of a clinch.

High surf and risky rip currents are expected along parts of the Carolina and mid-Atlantic coasts through early week. A tropical storm warning is already in effect for that area, with hurricane conditions possible beginning on Tuesday. It's too early to nail down any specific impacts for Atlantic Canada, but the timing would be Thursday-Friday.

Now, it's moving west-northwest at 23 mph with 45 mph sustained winds that extend 45 miles from the storm's center, still described as "disorganized".

It is said Beryl will "degenerate into a trough of low pressure" as it moves into the eastern caribbean sea by Monday.

Tropical storm watches were in effect for Barbados, St. Lucia and Dominica.

Puerto Rico, which was devastated by Hurricane Maria in September, remains under a state of emergency.
