YABUCOA, Puerto Rico — Tropical Storm Chris was squatting on Monday about 200 miles (320 kilometers) off the coast of the Carolinas, where forecasters expect it will gain hurricane strength before moving up Gulfstream waters on a path that could cause life-threatening surf on East Coast beaches this week. Meanwhile, the remnants of Tropical Storm Beryl dissipated after rushing over Dominica, but forecasters said strong gusty winds and locally heavy rains could reach Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, and Haiti and the Dominican Republic Monday night, possibly causing flooding or mudslides.
