Beryl strengthens slightly along coastal Carolina

Two days after slamming into northeast Florida, Beryl - slightly strengthened but still a tropical depression - prepared to re-enter the Atlantic on Wednesday, spreading heavy rain and blustery winds along the coast of the Carolinas.

The storm, which came ashore early Monday with 70 mph winds near Jacksonville Beach, Florida, increased its maximum sustained winds from 30 to 35 mph, the National Hurricane Center said.

"On the forecast track, the center of Beryl is expected to move off the coast of southern South Carolina later today and move along or just off the coast of South and North Carolina through this evening," forecasters said.

    All people in the world should listen to every little report because it can happen. Not like the horror movies but a much different way. I is in the bible that the four horsemen will bring with seven signs of the end. One is that people will lose their minds and the flesh of other people. It is not like the movies, you cant catch it if you get a bite. YOU JUST DIE CAUSE THEY EAT YOU!!!! So everybody should be ready with lots guns!!!!!!!
