This graphic from the National Hurricane Center shows the projected path of Tropical Storm Beryl on Sunday

Tropical Storm Beryl has picked up speed in movement, but not winds, according to Sunday's 11 a.m. advisory from the National Hurricane Center. They expect Chris to become a hurricane by mid-week with additional strengthening forecast afterward.

The storm was centered about 150 miles (245 kilometers) south of Cape Hatteras, North Carolina.

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

On this present position and the latest available forecast track, Tropical Storm Beryl no longer poses a direct threat to Barbados.

"Swells generated by Chris are expected to increase and affect portions of the coasts of North Carolina and the mid-Atlantic states into early next week", the NHC says. "Therefore, a small craft warning is also in effect", the DDM said.

Dad found dead after killing his teenagers in Sydney's north-west
Police have confirmed they are searching for a man after two teenagers were shot dead at a house in Sydney's north-west. The children's mother arrived at the scene after police and emergency services and was treated for severe shock.

Tropical storm watches are in effect for Martinique, St. Martin, St. Barthelemy, Saba, St. Eustatius and St. Maarten.

According to the 5:00 a.m. advisory, the center of Tropical Storm Beryl was located near latitude 13.7 North, longitude 56.0 West. Beryl is moving toward the west-northwest near 20 miles per hour (31 km/h) and this motion with an increase in forward speed is expected during the next couple of days.

Meanwhile, Tropical Storm Beryl - the second named storm of this season - is expected to dump heavy rain over the Lesser Antilles at the end of the weekend. "Gradual weakening is anticipated during the next 36 hours, and Beryl is forecast to degenerate into a trough of low pressure as it moves across the Lesser Antilles and into the eastern Caribbean Sea by Monday".

"However, due to the continuing uncertainties associated with Beryl, any possible motion towards the north could bring the system closer to the islands, thus, watches or warnings cannot be ruled out", the Department of Disaster Management (DDM) said in its 11am update on Sunday.

About 7,000 houses and businesses in Puerto Rico still lack power after Hurricane Maria leveled an electricity grid that was ill-maintained before the storm.
