Tropical Storm Chris forms in Atlantic

Tropical Storm Chris has formed in the Atlantic Ocean, though forecasters don't expect it to ever threaten land, according to the National Hurricane Center.

As of about 5 p.m. ET, the storm was located about 560 miles south of Cape Race, Newfoundland, with maximum sustained winds of 45 mph, according to the center.

The storm was moving to the east at 8 mph and was forecast to stay out over the open Atlantic and gradually weaken over the next couple of days as it encounters cooler water.

    Not really sure why people argue over weather reports. It would be fair to say that weather has been around for a very long time, and from time to time will do some very destructive things. The best we can do is stay as prepared as one can be to keep safe.. Anyone with half a brain knows we can't control it! And, if it is true that weather conditions have changed in the frequency and their volatile behaviors, why argue..Just shut up and help one another to be safe! The Media does often go off into high gear for ratings, but all in all, I would rather be safe than sorry..Use good judgment, and help others where you can to be safe. To much " HOT" air coming out of peoples mouths create storms that are far more destructive, and often times repairs or re-building is much harder. No need to go into a frenzy of fear of weather..Just shut up and find a safe place, and if it blows over, say thank God! Brain Surgery right? Lol..

    Finally a storm with my name on it and it stands no chance of making landfall in the US. I am so disappointed. My mother, Irene, got her chance. I probably won't live to see my storm come round again 😦
