The storm had maximum sustained winds of 45 mph and was churning through the Atlantic at 20 mph.
Bertha was located about 110 miles east of Barbados, the hurricane center’s 8 a.m. advisory said.
It formed on Thursday.
Tropical storm warnings were issued for Barbados, Dominica and St. Lucia, Puerto Rico, Vieques, Culebra, Martinique, and the U.S. and British Virgin Islands.
Such a warning means tropical storm conditions are expected in the area within the next 24 hours.
Tropical storm conditions were expected in Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands on Saturday, according to the National Weather Service.
Rainfall amounts from Bertha were projected at 1 to 3 inches, with isolated amounts up to 6 inches across parts of the Leeward Islands, Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands through Saturday night.
