It’s now Tropical Storm Chris

Tropical Depression 3 became Tropical Storm Chris overnight.

Chris is not moving. The storm remained stationary Sunday morning about 150 miles south of Cape Hatteras.

Beach hazard and rip current warnings remain in place. Swells generated by Chris are expected to increase.

All beaches in Dare County are at high risk for rip currents and red flags are flying indicating no swimming.

On beaches north of Bonner Bridge, watch for red flags stating no swimming.

Officials at the Cape Hatteras National Seashore suggest visitors experience the Atlantic Ocean from the safety of the beach. The seashore staff strongly recommends staying out of the water until conditions improve.

Sustained winds are close to 40 miles per hour. The National Hurricane Center warns that winds to gale force, but not directly associated with Chris, are expected along the North Carolina coast and over Pamlico and Albemarle Sounds during the next day or so.

In Rodanthe last night, ocean overwash occurred at the Rodanthe Pier and along Ocean Drive, south of the pier.
