By Zoila Palma: The National Hurricane Center is monitoring a tropical depression over the eastern North Pacific that is expected to become the 2nd named storm of the 2021 Atlantic Hurricane Season today.
Tropical Depression Two-E was located over the eastern North Pacific Ocean about 510 miles (820 km) south-southwest of Manzanillo, Mexico.
The depression is moving toward the west-northwest near 14 mph (22 km/h).
Maximum sustained winds are near 35 mph (55 km/h) with higher gusts.
Strengthening is forecast to take place during the next day or so, and the system is expected to become a tropical storm later today.
When that occurs, it will be named Blanca.
The public is reminded to activate their hurricane preparedness plans.
