Tropical Storm Adalia may hit Florida as a hurricane | Weather News

to updateTropical Storm Idalia formed in the Caribbean on Sunday. The storm is expected to intensify in the coming days and head towards Florida.

On a number of islands in the waters of the Caribbean Sea, an area with large tourist resorts, Hurricane Idalia has already caused heavy rains and winds on Sunday. Sunday evening, the storm was located 135 km east of the Mexican island of Cozumel.

The US National Hurricane Center, based in Miami, said a faster northward move is expected on Monday, bringing the storm into the eastern Gulf of Mexico. As a result, the storm is unlikely to move towards Mexico, but it will reach Florida on Wednesday, where it will become a hurricane.

Last week, Hurricane Hillary, a category 4 storm, battered the Mexican state of Baja California before reaching the US mainland. One person was killed and infrastructure was damaged.


Meanwhile, Franklin is about to become the first major hurricane of the season, the US National Hurricane Center warned Sunday. The storm is expected to acquire that status on Monday and move through Bermuda on Wednesday.

At around 10 pm BST on Sunday, Franklin was still about 855 kilometers from Bermuda. The National Hurricane Center reported that the storm’s wind speed was already around 155 kilometers per hour. The hurricane is not expected to reach the coast of the United States, but it will bring heavy rains to Bermuda.
