There were only two named storms in the Atlantic for the month of June. It wouldn't be until July 7th that the third named storm, called Chantal, would form.

Chantal formed in the West-Central part of the Atlantic, well to the east of Barbados on July 7th. It was notable for its high speed, at one point moving as fast as 30 miles per hour to the west/northwest.

The storm passed less than 150 miles to the south of Puerto Rico, prompting that country's government to put a plan in action to open shelters and prepare for potential impacts.

It did not make a direct landfall anywhere, and by July 10th, Chantal had dissipated into a tropical wave.
