Tropical Storm Beryl made landfall on Nantucket Island early Friday, bringing rain and wind but causing few problems according to local emergency managers.

The storm came ashore at 3 a.m. Friday on the southeast Massachusetts island and quickly moved back out to sea. Local officials say the storm brought only a good soaking rain.

National Hurricane Center (NHC) forecasters said the storm's current maximum sustained winds are at 50 miles per hour but added that Beryl will quickly lose tropical storm characteristics as it moves out into the ocean Friday.

Beryl is still expected to have some impact on Nova Scotia this weekend when it brings one to two inches of rain with it.

Beryl, the second named storm of the 2006 Atlantic Hurricane Season, formed late Tuesday off the coast of North Carolina.
