Tropical Storm Harvey Forms In Gulf

MIAMI, Aug. 19 (UPI) — Tropical Storm Harvey formed in the Gulf of Mexico Friday and was approaching the east coast of the Yucatan Peninsula with sustained winds of 45 miles per hour.

Harvey was located about 240 miles east-southeast of Belize City and was moving west at 12 mph, the National Weather Service said in its 5 p.m. EDT advisory.

The Mexican government issued a tropical storm warning for the Yucatan from Punta Gruesa to Chetumal. Other storm warnings were in effect for the Bay Islands of Honduras and the coast of Belize.

The storm was expected to strengthen as it moves west-northwest during the next 48 hours, crossing the Belize coast Saturday. Tropical-storm-force winds extended up to 45 miles from the center of the storm.

Isolated flash flooding could produce rainfall of more than of 8 inches, the weather service said.
