A third named Atlantic storm that formed off the North Carolina coast early on Sunday was forecast to become a hurricane on Monday, the U.S. National Hurricane Center said, while Tropical Storm Beryl looked set to threaten Puerto Rico.

Elsewhere, the remnants of storm Beryl were producing strong gusty winds and areas of heavy rain over the north-central Caribbean Sea, Hispaniola, Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands.

The Category 5 hurricane caused more than an estimated $100 billion in damage, killed dozens of people by the most conservative estimates and destroyed up to 75 percent of Puerto Rico's electricity transmission lines.

Although it is not expected to head toward North Carolina, Chris will churn up the seas, making for a high surf and unsafe rip currents as well as high winds. The storm could make landfall as a tropical storm early Friday in far northeastern Canada.

Aside from Chris, the only other prospect for tropical storm activity in the Atlantic is from the weather disturbance, which was, at one point, Hurricane Beryl. Wind associated with the remnants are expected to drop below gale-force later tonight or Monday morning.
