 HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND ---------------------- SURF:  Swells generated by Hurricane Chris are expected to affect portions of the coasts of North Carolina and the mid-Atlantic states during the next few days.  These swells could cause life-threatening surf and rip current conditions.  Please consult products from your local weather office.
RAINFALL: Chris is expected to produce total rain accumulations of 1 to 3 inches (25 to 75 millimeters) over Newfoundland, with possible isolated maximum amounts of 6 inches (150 millimeters). These rains may cause flash flooding.
