MIAMI - Subtropical Storm Beryl formed off the South Carolina coast on Friday and forecasters at the US National Hurricane Center issued a tropical storm warning for parts of the Southeastern US coast.

Beryl had top sustained winds of 45 miles per hour (75 kph) and was in the Atlantic about 305 miles (490 km) east of Charleston, South Carolina, the Miami-based center said.

Beryl is not expected to threaten oil and gas drilling or production. The storm is forecast to eventually turn back toward the Atlantic and away from the Gulf of Mexico, where US oil and gas operations are clustered.
