Earl to impact Central America

Earl
Hurricane Earl – the fifth named storm of the 2016 Atlantic hurricane season – with sustained winds of 120 km/h is racing toward Honduras, Belize, Guatemala and Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula.

Forecasters say parts of Belize could be hit with heavy rain which could top 300 mm with possible flooding and mudslides over mountainous areas.

Earl is expected to weaken over land and possibly strengthen when it reaches the Bay of Campeche with another landfall near Veracruz, Mexico expected.
