By Rubén Morales Iglesias: At 9:00 am on Thursday, Tropical Storm Karl was located 245 miles North of Coatzacalcos, and was moving south-southeastward towards the Bay of Campeche, said the United States National Hurricane Center (US-NHC). The government of Mexico issued a Tropical Storm Warning for Bay of Campeche from Alvarado eastward to Ciudad del Carmen.
Karl was packing winds of 50 miles per hour.
The US-NHC said the center of Tropical Storm Karl was located near latitude 21.7 North, longitude 93.9 West.
“Karl is moving toward the south-southeast near 5 mph (7 km/h), and this general motion should continue through tonight. Karl is expected to turn southward or south-southwestward over the Bay of Campeche on Friday, and this motion should continue through early Saturday,” said the US-NHC.
The forecast track projects the center of Karl to reach the coasts of Tabasco or Veracruz states in Mexico late Friday night or early Saturday.
“Karl is forecast to gradually lose some strength later today or on Friday while it approaches the Bay of Campeche coast of Mexico,” said the US-NHC.
The 9:00 am NHC report said tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 80 miles from the center.
Veracruz, Tabasco, northern Chiapas and Oaxaca states should expect 3 to 7 inches of rain, with a maximum up to 12 inches in some areas. Flash flooding, along with mudslides, could develop in higher terrain.
