After producing rough surf and deadly rip currents along the East Coast of the United States, Hurricane Chris will sweep northeastward into the Canadian Maritime.

The United States was spared any direct impacts from Chris early this week as it strengthened into a Category 2 hurricane about 250 miles off the coast of Cape Hatteras, North Carolina, on Tuesday night.

However, strong rip currents produced by the storm’s powerful winds proved fatal for a swimmer in North Carolina this week. Anyone headed to the shore along the mid-Atlantic or New England beaches this week should swim only where lifeguards are present and obey all posted signs and flags.
