On the heels of Tropical Storm Danielle’s passing, another tropical depression forming in the Gulf of Mexico is threatening the Yucatan Peninsula with heavy rains through the end of the week.
While Danielle buffetted Yucatan, Campeche and Quintana Roo with gusty winds and thunderstorms, the still-unnamed tropical depression that starting moving inland in eastern Mexico Wednesday June 22 was expected mainly to soak the region with isolated downpours through the weekend. Some wind gusts and electrical storms were also possible, however.
The remnants of Tropical Storm Danielle dissipated after bringing heavy rains that caused little major damage, though at least one death in east-central Mexico.
The U.S. National Hurricane Center in Miami said Tuesday that Danielle weakened quickly after making landfall about 10 miles (15 kilometers) north of the port of Tuxpan, in the Gulf coast state of Veracruz.
The storm flooded streets and the Veracruz state government cancelled many classes as a precautionary measure.
The Veracruz state government said there were no immediate reports of any casualties or significant damage.
But in the neighboring state of Tamaulipas to the north, the state government reported the body of a man was found in the city of Madero, near the Veracruz state line, after water levels in a drainage canal dropped after Danielle passed.
The 22-year-old man was apparently homeless.
