Chris, Maria updates

Was out for a minor medical thingee so didn’t get to post on Beryl degenerating to an open wave yesterday.  Tropical Storm Chris may look like a hurricane …

… but it’s just a tropical storm.  Because it sat in one place for so long, it cooled off the water and cut of it’s own energy supply.  Now that it’s moving it should become a minimal hurricane before swiping Newfoundland on it’s way to the “hurricane graveyard” in the North Atlantic, although NHC is holding it together as a system almost to Ireland.

Supertyphoon Maria is still on track to brush the northern (and heavily developed) tip of Taiwan tonight before making landfall in China.  More on that later …
