Tropical Storm Beryl aims for southeast coast

Beryl aims for southeast coast
May 26,  2012   MIAMI (Reuters) - Subtropical Storm Beryl moved slowly toward the U.S. southeastern coast on Saturday, threatening heavy rains and dangerous surf for Memorial Day weekend beachgoers in northern Florida, Georgia and South Carolina.

Beryl was centered about 220 miles east-southeast of Charleston, South Carolina, carrying maximum sustained winds of 45 mph. It was moving southwest, with tropical storm-force winds extending about 115 miles from the storm's center.
The storm was not expected to develop into a hurricane, said Jack Beven, a senior hurricane specialist at the U.S. National Hurricane Center in Miami.

Forecasts indicate the center of the storm will make landfall either late Sunday or early Monday, Beven said. Weather models show Beryl will eventually turn back toward the Atlantic, posing no threat to oil and gas production facilities in the U.S. Gulf of Mexico.

Beryl Aims at Jacksonville, North Florida
May 27,  2012  Sunday
Tropical Storm Beryl is headed for landfall Sunday night near the border of Georgia and Florida.
Beryl has made the transition from a subtropical system to a fully tropical storm. The increased organization we've seen during the first half of Sunday has also caused the winds to increase to around 65 mph.

Heavy rain bands on the western side of Beryl will reach the coast from Charleston, S.C., south to Daytona Beach, Fla., today.

Tropical Depression Beryl headed back to Atlantic

CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) Tropical Depression Beryl was heading back toward the ocean early Wednesday as it brought rains to South Carolina.

The depression's maximum sustained winds had increased to near 35 mph (55 kph). Additional strengthening was expected and the U.S. National Hurricane Center said Beryl could regain tropical storm strength later in the day.

Beryl was expected to dump up to 6 inches of rain, with isolated amounts of 8 inches, in northeastern South Carolina and eastern North Carolina.

By 5 a.m. Wednesday, the depression was centered about 25 miles (40 kilometers) north-northeast of Charleston, S.C., and was moving east-northeast near 14 mph (22 kph). On that track, forecasters said the depression was expected to skim along the South Carolina coast before moving back over the Atlantic.



Tornado from remnants of Beryl destroys homes in NC

CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) The remnants of Tropical Storm Beryl spun off a tornado that destroyed three homes and damaged dozens of others near the North Carolina coast Wednesday as the system sped toward the Atlantic, authorities said.

Between 40 and 50 homes were damaged near Peletier in the western part of Carteret County, said county Emergency Services Director Jo Ann Smith. She said there were no reports of injuries.

Many homes suffered only minor damage, but three were destroyed when the winds came through shortly before noon, she said.

The National Weather Service in Morehead City confirmed Wednesday that a strong EF1 tornado with maximum winds of 110 mph caused the damage.

The remnants of the storm were skimming the North Carolina coast and prompting flood watches in eastern North Carolina. Beryl was expected to gain strength even as it loses its tropical characteristics.
