Tropical Storm Chris continues to spin off North Carolina coast

A blanket of white mist is observed from the vantage point of a hill overlooking a section of Tortola mid-morning today July 9

The second hurricane of the 2018 season has quickly strengthened into a Category 2 storm that is moving away from the USA but making a bee-line toward Canada and, eventually, Iceland.

Hurricane Chris was located about 205 miles east-southeast of Cape Hatteras, N.C., moving to the northeast at 10 mph.

Chris was expected to remain well off the USA coast, the NHC said, adding on its current forecast track, the center of Chris will be near southeastern Newfoundland on Thursday night.

Environment Canada issued a special weather statement for parts of Newfoundland, warning of strong winds, heavy rain and pounding surf on Thursday.

Ocean swells along the southern coast of Newfoundland are expected to reach eight metres in some areas, while the Atlantic coast of Nova Scotia could also receive swells of up to four metres.

The statement stands in contrast to the first remarks Pruitt made to his staff , which focused on reigning in regulations. He said Wheeler is a lobbyist who went "to bat for the very industries he's now being asked to regulate".

Everything is just right for Chris to turn into a hurricane while the storm leading it will never get listed in the hurricane archive.

The island of Newfoundland is facing its first tropical weather system of the 2018 season as Hurricane Chris continues to gain strength off the US Eastern Seaboard.

"As Chris continues to move away from Florida and the United States, it will drag our moisture away, leading to lower rain chances here", News 6 meteorologist Troy Bridges said. These swells could cause life-threatening surf and rip current conditions.

Hurricane Maria dealt a vicious blow when it hit Puerto Rico on September 20 with winds close to 150 miles per hour (240 kph), knocking out the island's already teetering electric grid and water supply.

By Thursday the cold front moves closer and we can once again expect rain chances across Middle Georgia.
