Hurricane Earl weakened to a tropical storm early today after making landfall near Belize City, on the western Caribbean Sea.

Wind speeds dropped to about 100 km/h as Earl moved inland.

Belize was also forecast to receive between 200 and 400 mm of rain.

The storm is predicted to move across northern Guatemala and southeastern Mexico where its rains could still cause flash floods and mudslides.
