Cuba Has TS Richard Near Honduras

By Circles Robinson

HAVANA TIMES, Oct. 23 — Tropical Storm Richard is now blowing at 100 kph (62 mph) as it moves along the northeastern coastline of Honduras, reports the Cuban Meteorological Institute (INSMET) at noon on Saturday EST.

Richard, which could become a hurricane by early Sunday, is expected to continue along the Honduran coastline before a full landing in Belize on Monday morning.

Both the National Hurricane Center (NHC) in Miami and the Havana-based INSMET inform that the weather system poses no threat to Cuba.

The NHC says a tropical storm warning is in place for northeastern Honduras and a hurricane warning for the central and western coast of the Central American nation.

Belize and the Mexican Yucanan are both currently under a tropical storm warning.

At 12:00 noon EST, TS Richard was located above far eastern Honduras and 110 kilometers north-northwest of Cabo Gracias a Dios on the Honduras-Nicaraguan border and moving west at a speed of 13 kph (8 mph).

The next INSMET advisory is due at 6:00 p.m. EST.
