(Reuters) - Tropical Storm Chris strengthened in the mid-Atlantic and was expected to become a hurricane on Monday evening or Tuesday, while the former Hurricane Beryl dwindled into a heavy rainstorm threatening to bring flooding to Puerto Rico, forecasters said. EDT (2100 GMT), the storm was about 215 miles (350 km) south-southeast of Cape Hatteras, North Carolina. Chris will begin a northeastern course from late Tuesday off the U.S. Hurricane Maria dealt a vicious blow when it hit Puerto Rico on Sept. 20 with winds close to 150 mph (240 kph), knocking out the island’s already teetering electric grid and water supply.
