Hurricane Chris Swirls Away from US East Coast
Chris strengthened into a Category 2 hurricane on Tuesday, July 10, but it remained well away from the US East Coast on Wednesday. Chris was forecast to travel northeast, away from the US coast, brushing near Newfoundland, Canada, by the weekend. The storm was generating rough surf and rip currents as it spun offshore. This footage shows Chris on Wednesday and also a timelapse of the storm off the coast of the Carolinas over several days.
