Harvey Weakens After Hitting Belize

MIAMI, Aug. 20 (UPI) — Tropical Storm Harvey weakened Saturday afternoon after making landfall in Belize.

The National Hurricane Center in Miami said in its 4 p.m. CDT advisory that Harvey was losing its punch as it moved inland but was still producing winds up to 50 mph as it headed to the north-northwest at 13 mph.

The weather center said the government of Belize had ended its tropical storm warning from Belize City northward. A warning remained in effect for the coast of Belize south of Belize City.

The governments of Guatemala and Honduras had discontinued tropical storm warnings for those countries.

Forecasters said Harvey is expected produce 3-6 inches of rain as it moves to the west or west-northwest for the next couple of days and deteriorate into a tropical depression on Sunday. Some areas could get up to 10 inches and the hurricane center warns there could be life-threatening flash floods and mudslides, particularly at higher altitudes.

Storm surges along the Belize coastline were expected to calm during the night.
