Tropical Storm Alex slated to hit Yucatan Peninsula

Tropical Storm Alex slated to hit Yucatan Peninsula. The western Caribbean saw the birth of Tropical Storm Alex on Saturday. So far reports generating from forecasters haven’t concluded whether the storm will be affecting the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.

The National Hurricane Center in Miami had released statements early on Saturday informing that the storm has currently only managed to push the wind levels up to 45 mph. at the moment most storm models are depicting the storm  hitting the Yucatan Peninsula around this weekend.

So far there are no confirmed reports of the storm’s movement towards the Gulf, while some experts are saying it’s too soon to tell whether it’ll move towards that direction or not. The storm’s movements can only be predicted but not confirmed, it can’t be confirmed.

Belize and the east coast of Yucatan Peninsula have already received warnings for the tropical storm. Belize is about 140 miles away from the storm as of right now, whereas Chetumal, a Mexican city is about 165 miles away.  The Tropical Storm Alex is travelling at 9mph per hour.

There are heavy concerns over what might happen if the Tropical Storm Alex hits the oil spill area. Experts haven’t predicted anything good so far. Around 69-132 million gallons of crude oil is reported to still be in the water.
