Tropical Depression Forms off the Coast of Belize

by Associated Press posted Jun 17 2013 5:13PM
 MIAMI (AP) - A tropical depression has formed off the coast of Belize and forecasters say it is expected to bring as much as five inches of rain to parts of Belize, Guatemala and northern Honduras. 
 
     The National Hurricane Center in Miami said the Atlantic season's second tropical depression formed Monday. The depression has winds of 35 mph (56 kph). Some weakening is expected after the depression moves over Belize on Monday, but it could strengthen on Tuesday if the center emerges in the Bay of Campeche. It was about 10 miles (15 kilometers) northeast of Monkey River Town Monday evening.
 
     Forecasters say the several inches of rain could cause flash flooding, especially in mountainous areas, but no coastal watches or warnings were issued.
