Meanwhile, further out in the Atlantic Ocean, Beryl is expected to hit the eastern Caribbean as a hurricane instead of dissipating, threatening islands still trying to recover from last year's storms, forecasters said Friday.

"Hurricane Beryl is a very small storm". It was centered 780 miles (1260 kilometers) east-southeast of the Lesser Antilles and was moving west at 14 mph (22 kph).

National Hurricane Center has released the latest report for Hurricane Beryl Saturday morning and shows the system is beginning the forecasted slight turn to the west-northwest at 14 miles per hour.

Amy Parker DeSorbo, director of St. George Village Botanical Gardens, encouraged St. Croix residents to attend Mango Melee, which is slated for Sunday, at least a couple of days before the storm is expected to approach the territory.

Maximum sustained winds are near 80 miles per hour (130 km/h) with higher gusts. THREE: The forecast from the National Hurricane Center calls for gradual strengthening to Tropical Storm status by Saturday with continued strengthening through Monday. It was expected to pass about 70 miles south of Puerto Rico on Monday, but forecasters warned the storm-wracked US territory could see up to 30 mph winds and heavy rains that could cause flooding and mudslides.

Another storm is forming off the coast of North Carolina.

The storm is expected to encounter a hostile environment over the weekend and on Monday once it reaches the Caribbean Sea.

Rainy days could be ahead for Beaufort County this weekend and Hurricane Beryl weakened overnight.

Those in the Lesser Antilles, Virgin Islands, Puerto Rico, the Dominican Republic and Haiti should monitor the progress of Beryl.

There are now both a tropical depression and a hurricane spinning in the Atlantic, but for now, neither appears to be a threat to SC of the U.S.

What started as a relatively quiet Atlantic hurricane season has quickly changed as two developments have occurred in the Atlantic over the past week.

By Sunday, before Beryl touches land somewhere along the central Lesser Antilles, the storm is forecast to be much weaker becoming a tropical cyclone or even just a tropical disturbance.
