Tropical Beryl to cause dangerous surf

Dangerous surf conditions, including rip currents, expected along coast

MIAMI | May 27, 2012

Tropical Storm Beryl was expected to make landfall Sunday night on the Southeast Coast of the United States, U.S. forecasters said.

Dangerous surf conditions, including rip currents, are expected along the coast from northeastern Florida to North Carolina over the remainder of the Memorial Day weekend.

At 5 p.m. Sunday, Beryl was about 85 miles east southeast of Jacksonville, Fla., and 100 miles southeast of Brunswick, Ga., packing winds of 65 mph, the National Weather Service said. The storm was headed west at 10 mph.

A tropical storm warning was in effect from the Volusia/Brevard County line in Florida to Edisto Beach in South Carolina.

The NWS said some slight strengthening of the storm was possible before landfall, and a steady weakening once it's on land. Beryl was expected to downgrade to a tropical depression by Monday night.

Those near the beach should be aware of a storm surge, the NWS said, and normally dry areas near the coast could be flooded.

Dangerous surf conditions, including rip currents, are expected along the coast from northeastern Florida to North Carolina over the remainder of the Memorial Day weekend.

Beryl is the second named storm of the hurricane season.
