US National Hurricane Centre – Hurricane forms in Caribbean

The US National Hurricane Centre has found a new storm Rina formed in the western Caribbean. The US National Hurricane Centre (NHC) said Rina is heading towards Belize and Mexico's Yucatan peninsula.

Rina has been formed in the western Caribbean, threatening to bring heavy rain and powerful winds to southern Mexico and Central America.

A Nicaraguan navy vessel that was evacuating coastal residents has gone missing with 27 people on board. Much of Central America is already water logged after intense downpours that killed around 100 people.

At 1800GMT the NHC said Rina was a category one storm with sustained winds of 120km/h (75 mph). It was centered 310km (195 miles) southwest of Gran Cayman island and was expected to develop into a major hurricane as it moved slowly towards the mainland.
