Hurricane Chris Forms; Zero Threat to Texas

Hurricane Chris spun up Tuesday off the East Coast. It's the second hurricane of the season -- and it's no threat to Texas.

It poses no head-on threat to the East Coast, either -- other than potentially hazardous rip currents -- as it takes a predicted path toward Canada.

When the system became a hurricane, it was a Category 1 hurricane with 85 mph winds -- and located about 200 miles east-southeast of Cape Hatteras, North Carolina, moving northeast at 10 mph, acording to the National Hurricane Center.

 Chris could make landfall as a post-tropical storm later in the week in southeastern Newfoundland, according to the Canadian Hurricane Centre.
