The storm's maximum sustained winds Friday have decreased to near 45 mph (75 kph). The U.S. National Hurricane Center in Miami says the tropical storm has become a post-tropical system and it will no longer issue advisories.
Chris is centered about 335 miles (535 kilometers) east-southeast of Cape Race, Newfoundland, and is moving west-northwest at 16 mph (26 kph).
