Mexico preps for hurricane as Tropical Storm Franklin gathers strength

Mexico preps for hurricane as Tropical Storm Franklin gathers strength

The storm could hit Mexico twice in the next few days, forecasters say.

"It takes only one landfall event near you to make this an active season", Bell said.

If maximum sustained winds reach a speed of 74 miles per hour, Franklin would be reclassified as a Category 1 hurricane, something forecasters expect will happen before it makes landfall.

Tropical Storm Franklin is threatening some popular cruise ports and there are now Tropical Storms warnings for Cozumel, Belize City and all along parts of Mexico's Yucatan Peninsula.

Tropical storm warnings extend over most of the rest of the Yucatan Peninsula, including Cancún and Cozumel.

Tropical Storm Franklin could reach hurricane strength before it slams into Mexico's Yucatan Peninsula, dumping a massive amount of rain and pushing a risky storm surge into the coast late Monday or early Tuesday.

Franklin becomes the sixth tropical storm of the 2017 Atlantic hurricane season.

Rainfall ranging from 3 to 6 inches is anticipated in these areas, with isolated amounts around 12 inches possible.

Flooding rain and damaging winds can be expected with Franklin as it approaches the Yucatan Peninsula.

A tropical wave (indicated in red) could develop into a tropical storm this week.

Meanwhile, forecasters are also watching another low-pressure area in the Atlantic Ocean, now located midway between the coasts of Africa and South America.

The CSU Tropical Meteorology Project team is predicting a total of 11 additional named storms to form after August 1. Further development is considered unlikely, with forecast odds of it developing into a tropical system at 10 percent in the next 48 hours, and 30 percent in the next five days.
