It has been a mostly stationary storm so far, with sustained maximum wind speeds close to 45 mph extending at least 60 miles from the center.
While Chris remains off the coast, the NHC explained that there were dangers posed to those in the water near land, including life-threatening surf swells and rip currents.
"Tropical storm warnings and watches are in effect for portions of the Lesser Antilles, where Beryl is forecast to bring impacts from wind and rainfall to some of the islands beginning late today or tonight", the National Hurricane Center said in a statement.
The remnant of Tropical Storm Beryl has rushed over Dominica but then dissipated, lessening the threat to Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands, which had braced for heavy rains and strong winds less than a year after being battered by hurricanes.
As for Beryl it has lose its circulation and tropical characteristics making it just a remnant low with winds of 45 miles per hour and gust up to 60 miles per hour. Dominica Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit, in a public address, said Beryl could change track and intensity and therefore people should remain on alert.
The storm was forecast to weaken into a low-pressure system Monday by the time it reaches seas just south of Puerto Rico, which was devastated by Hurricane Maria in September.
There was high threat of risky rip currents north of Cape Lookout, according to the National Weather Service's Newport/Morehead City office.
Beryl was named the first hurricane of the Atlantic season Friday.
With Tropical Storm Chris swirling off the North Carolina coast, North Carolina officials are watching the storm closely and telling those on the coast to be cautious.
Though the storm is far from the strength of major Hurricanes Maria and Irma previous year, Beryl still posed a threat of wind and rain to areas that have not fully recovered from those destructive storms. The area is also expected to experience gusty winds.
"Hazardous sea conditions with significant wave heights of up to 2.4 to three metres or eight to 10 feet can be expected".
The hurricane center said there was a possibility that Beryls remnants could regenerate into a tropical cyclone in a few days while moving across the Bahamas.
