Friday, July 13, 2018, 4:17 PM - Post-tropical storm Chris barreled towards Newfoundland Thursday, bringing powerful winds, heavy downpours and pounding surf.

The Canadian Hurricane Centre issued its last tropical cyclone information statement for Newfoundland early Friday morning as the centre of Chris moved northeast of the island and is "speeding off into the Atlantic." 

"Rain, strong winds and heavy pounding surf over coastal regions will end by morning," said the CHC in the statement. "All warnings have ended."

THE IMPACT

Rain associated with this post-tropical cyclone developed over southern Newfoundland early Thursday morning, quickly spreading northwards through the morning and mid-day hours. Gander picked up the heaviest rain with nearly 80 mm recorded, with Cape Pine and Bonavista seeing the strongest wind gusts upwards of 100 km/h.

Higher than normal water levels were recorded along the southern Avalon Peninsula with swells of 6 to 8 metres in areas including, Portugal Cove.

HOT ON THE HEELS OF CHRIS IS BERYL

Forecasters are now closely watching remnants of Beryl in the North Atlantic as environmental conditions could become favourable for redevelopment over the next several days. If it intensifies, Beryl could move northeastward toward Atlantic Canada for a second round of tropical moisture and strong winds.
