  • Hurricane Beryl heads for Caribbean islands; separate tropical depression forms near Carolinas

Satellite imagery indicates convection has persisted with enough tenacity and enough evidence of surface low pressure existence that the National Hurricane Center (NHC) indicated the formation of Tropical Storm Beryl Thursday afternoon.

In its 5 a.m. update, the National Hurricane Center said Beryl was located about 830 miles east-southeast of the Lesser Antilles and moving west-northwest at 14 mph.

A tropical depression is a low-pressure system with thunderstorms that produce maximum winds of about 39 miles per hour. It's expected to degenerate into a low pressure system before it reaches the Lesser Antilles.

There are no watches or warnings in effect for the storm.

A tropical depression off the North Carolina coast is expected to strengthen into a tropical storm by Sunday, but is expected to move north and away from the Carolinas. Dry air and fast upper-level winds should cause this storm to dissipate by early next week. Gradual strengthening is forecast during the next few days and while it is expected to reach Category 1 hurricane strength by Tuesday, the track remains offshore.

Anuram Kaewchano, told CNN he was shocked to learn the news. "I believe other farmers in the area feel the same way", he said. Elon Musk, the entrepreneur behind the Tesla automobile and the SpaceX rocket company, said he would send engineers to help.


Still, the storm is expected to impact some islands in the Caribbean even if it doesn't directly pass over them.

Due to Beryl's small size - with tropical storm winds extending outward only about 35 miles and hurricane force winds extending out about 10 miles from its center - there is greater-than-usual uncertainty in the analysis of Beryl's current intensity.

Following Tropical Storm Alberto, which developed during Memorial Day weekend, there were no tropical storms over the Atlantic basin during June for the first time since 2014, AccuWeather reported.

The National Hurricane Center in Florida is monitoring two tropical disturbances.

The barrelling tropical storm caused more than £37million ($50million) in damage and claimed 12 lives as it moved up the U.S. coast in May. Last year, Hurricanes Harvey, Irma and Maria helped rack up storm losses totaling more than $200 billion, the most ever. From 1950 through 2017, the average number of named storms has been 11 (though from 1981-2010, the average has been 12).
