Tropical Storm Harvey weakens to depression as it approaches peninsula


Tropical Storm Harvey weakened into a depression as it moved through the Caribbean Sea over the weekend on a projected course that would have it approaching Central America and the Yucatan Peninsula early this week, according to the Associated Press.

The U.S. National Hurricane Center reported Saturday that Harvey was centered about 140 miles (225 kilometers) north-northwest of Curacao and was heading west at 22 mph (35 kph). The storm had maximum sustained winds of 35 mph (55 kph).


The centers said Harvey could regain its tropical storm status on Sunday or Sunday night.

Another tropical storm, Kenneth, was far out in the Pacific Ocean off Mexico and moving away from land.

The hurricane center said Kenneth was expected to strengthen and could become a hurricane.
