A hurricane watch is in effect for the Mexican coast, ranging from Puerto de Veracruz to Rio Panuco. Tropical storm warnings are in place for a larger portion of the region, encompassing the coast of Mexico from Chetumal to Sabancuy, and from Belize City in Belize northward to the Mexican border.
The storm continues to batter Belize and the Yucatan Peninsula with heavy rain and strong winds, and flash flooding is still a major concern. Tropical storm-force winds extend outward up to 140 miles from the storm’s center.
