The government in Dominica has lifted the state of emergency and curfew they put in place ahead of the passage of Tropical Storm Beryl.

WIC News has had no reports of any damage or issue relating to the weather system.

When Beryl was first named she was the first hurricane of this year.

A tropical storm watch for the island was discontinued at 11pm local time yesterday, with a flood warning downgraded to a flood watch at 6am today.

People in areas prone to flooding, landslides and falling rocks are advised to continue being vigilant and to continue exercising caution.

Large waves and dangerous rip-currents will create unsafe conditions for small-craft operators. Sea bathers are advised to stay out of the water.

A release from the Dominica government this morning thanked people on the island for cooperating with authorities and that business should now resume as usual.

Tropical Storm Chris, which was reported to be 215 miles (345km) off the coast of North Carolina at 10am AST, is expected to turn into a hurricane on Tuesday.
