Hurricane Chris strengthens as it moves away from U.S.

Hurricane Chris strengthens as it moves away from U.S.

Chris is expected to create large swells along the east coast, which can result in life-threatening surf and rip currents.

An Air Force Reserve Reconnaissance aircraft is scheduled to fly over Chris Tuesday afternoon. Toward the weekend, it may hit Newfoundland as a tropical storm.

Weather forecasters say Tropical Storm Chris has reached hurricane strength while moving away from the US coast in the Atlantic.

Locally heavy rains and gusty winds were likely to continue from eastern Cuba and Hispaniola northward across the eastern Bahamas for the next day or two.

Chris was forecasted to begin weakening by Thursday, and become a strong post-tropical cyclone by Thursday night or early Friday.

Thailand Cave Rescue Saves 8 Children Trapped For Weeks Underground
Since the operation started, the area outside the cave's entrance has filled with media, volunteers and onlookers. Medical officials told reporters Tuesday that they're healthy, fever-free, mentally fit and talking.

Hurricane Chris is now about 205 miles off the coast of Cape Hatteras, with sustained maximum wind speeds of 85 mph extending at least 15 miles from the center.

Environment Canada meteorologist Ian Hubbard said the storm was off the coast of Carolina on Tuesday and was expected to intensify as it started moving northeast later in the day.

The storm was expected to remain well off the US coast, and latest projections show it is forecast to pass well southeast of the Canadian province of Nova Scotia in a couple of days, then move near or over southeastern Newfoundland by Friday, the hurricane center said.

Hubbard said the storm's track amounted to good news for people in Nova Scotia, but some eastern areas of the province could still expect some rain.
