Tropical Storm Harvey lashes Central America

Tropical Storm Harvey has made landfall over Belize and is expected to move into northern Guatemala on Saturday afternoon or night.

The storm has maximum sustained winds of 60 mph, with higher gusts, and is heading west at 13 mph, according to the Miami-based National Hurricane Center.

Harvey made landfall on the coast of Belize, near the town of Dangriga. It is expected to weaken now that it is moving inland.

A tropical storm warning is in effect for the the coasts of Guatemala and Belize and for the coast of Honduras from Punta Sal westward. A warning means that tropical storm conditions are expected within 36 hours.

As of 2 p.m. ET, Harvey was located about 35 miles south of Belize City.
