Mexico is Preparing for the Tropical Storm Franklin

  • Tropical Storm Franklin Could Form This Week

The National Hurricane Center said the storm's centre was 120 kilometres northwest of Chetumal and moving west-northwest at 22 km/h Tuesday morning after making landfall overnight.

Accuweather expects that Franklin could reach hurricane strength with sustained winds of at least 74 miles per hour before passing over the Yucatan Peninsula late Monday and early Tuesday.

A hurricane watch has been issued from Puerto de Veracruz north to Rio Panuco.

Meteorologist Ed Vallee compared Franklin to Hurricane Earl, which struck the Yucatan in August 2016 and resulted in a state of emergency in Quintana Roo.

Tropical Storm Franklin is forecast to continue moving west-northwestward during the next couple of days. Farmers are also urged to protect animals and crops, and people living in or near flood-prone areas are urged to seek shelter at places designated as such, or with family or friends in safe areas.

Expected rainfall amounts vary between 3 and 6 inches, with some areas across the Yucatan Peninsula and Belize may receive as much as 12 inches of rain through Wednesday, according to the center's advisory. It's expected to be a Category 1 hurricane when it hits the Mexican coast again, between Tampico and Veracruz, the National Hurricane Center projected.

Although predicting the path of tropical storms can sometimes be challenging, there is little doubt that Franklin is on a crash course with the Yucatan.

In addition, waves in excess of 10 feet may lash the eastern Yucatan coast, including Cozumel and Cancún, it added. The storm is expected to downgrade to a tropical depression by 2 a.m. Friday over south-central Mexico.

After crossing the peninsula, Franklin could re-intensify into a hurricane in the Bay of Campeche to deliver another blow to Mexico's east coast later in the week. However, it expected high surf, rip currents, and possibly some minor coastal flooding should affect southern Texas on Wednesday and Thursday.
