MIAMI (AP) -- Forecasters say Tropical Storm Chris has formed off
the coast of Newfoundland in the Atlantic Ocean but is no threat to
land.

The National Hurricane Center said Tuesday afternoon that the
storm has maximum sustained winds of 45 mph and was moving
east at 8 mph.

The high-altitude storm is some 560 miles south-southwest of Cape Race. No coastal watches or warnings have been issued.

Forecasters say Chris is not expected to strengthen and will
fizzle out quick by Wednesday night or Thursday.
