Tropical Storm Chris was about 160 miles (257 km) south of Cape Hatteras in North Carolina with top sustained winds of 45 miles per hour (72 kph), the NHC said in an advisory. It was seen staying well off the U.S. coast.
“Swells generated by Chris are expected to increase and affect portions of the coasts of North Carolina and the mid-Atlantic states into early next week,” the advisory said, adding that some of the resulting conditions could be life-threatening.
Tropical Storm Chris continues to become better organized. Air Force reconnaissance indicates max winds have increased to 50 mph.

Food waste is a huge problem, with estimates that nearly 30 to 40 percent of the food produced in the United States is wasted each year. This is a startling statistic when you consider reports showing that more than 49 million Americans live in food insecure households, including 33.3 million adults and 15.8 million children. There’s also a significant impact on the environment to consider as the majority of food waste, reported to be 33.5 million tons annually, ends up in landfills where it rots and produces methane, a harmful greenhouse gas.
Nearly 50 percent of food waste is produced by consumers, with farms, businesses and industry comprising the rest. Raising awareness of food waste is the first step in battling this epic problem, and then change has to start with the individual.
