Beryl's size was still small and there was much uncertainty in predicting the hurricane's intensity because of its size, the agency said. At 8 a.m. Saturday, the U.S. National Hurricane Center said Beryl had maximum sustained winds of 75 miles per hour (120 kph).

The hurricane center said: 'Satellite data indicate the maximum sustained winds have increased to near 75 miles per hour (120 km/h) with higher gusts.

A number of Caribbean islands issued tropical storm and hurricane watches Friday afternoon ahead of Category 1 Hurricane Beryl, which the National Hurricane Center described as a "miniature" and unpredictable.

But the center did warn that it may still be at hurricane strength when it reaches the Lesser Antilles and moves into the Caribbean late Sunday or early Monday.

Tropical Depression 3 is located 195 miles south-southeast of Cape Hatteras, North Carolina, Saturday morning and is moving north-northwest at 6 mph. With the storm tracking a bit more to the south than expected, the NHC slightly shifted the cone away from the island, but that could change over the next few days.

So, what could that bring to the North and SC coasts?

However, the storm is expected to push off the the northeast, away from the continental United States, without ever coming close to land.

Russian Federation can play with five at the back, as against Spain , or a four-man defense, as in the three group-stage games. After 120 minutes of football and with the teams tied 1-1, referee Bjorn Kuipers from the Netherlands whistled for penalties .

As Beryl moves toward Puerto Rico and Haiti, however, it is expected to diminish to a tropical storm.

Hurricane-force winds extend outward up to 10 miles from the centre, and tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 35 miles, the DDM said.

According to the National Hurricane Center (NHC), these favorable conditions may remain in place through early Sunday, and Beryl could gain even more intensity.

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

Small storms can morph quickly - Beryl flared up from a depression Thursday morning to a hurricane in less than 24 hours. "It would be best if they are completed by June 1st at the start of hurricane season".

The official forecast track from the National Hurricane Center takes Beryl to the eastern Caribbean Sea over the weekend.

Meanwhile, a tropical depression formed in the Atlantic well off the North Carolina coast, but forecasters said there were no coastal watches or warnings in effect.
