The National Hurricane Center has classified Tropical Storm Bertha as the longest living July storm in history. Today Bertha surpassed a 1960 July storm by several hours. Bertha is likely to continue for the next few days. Bertha's impact on the United States has been minimal. Rip currents were a problem over the weekend but seas have been subsiding over the past few days as the storm continues to move away from the United States. In Bermuda, the government dispatched cleanup crews and is expected to restore power to 200 remaining customers by late Tuesday night. Bertha's heavy rains flooded roads and its winds felled utility poles, leaving up to 7,500 without electricity on Monday. There were no reports of injuries. Late Tuesday night the storm was nearly 350 miles northeast of the area and moving away.
