Hurricane Richard to dump rain on Belize, Yucatan

The storm known as Richard intensified in the Caribbean from a tropical storm into a Category 1 hurricane as maximum sustained winds increased to 90 miles per hour, the National Hurricane Center reported Sunday.

Hurricane Richard was located about 25 miles (40 kilometers) south-southeast of Belize City, moving west-northwest at 13 mph Sunday afternoon, the center said.

No significant change in strength is expected in the storm before it reaches the coast of Belize by Sunday evening. It is forecast to weaken once it moves inland.
