Tropical Depression Forms Off Coast Of Belize

MIAMI (June 17, 2013)--A tropical depression formed Monday off the coast of Belize and is expected to dump as much as five inches of rain on parts of Belize, Guatemala and northern Honduras, forecasters said.

The National Hurricane Center in Miami said the Atlantic season's second tropical depression has winds of 35 miles per hour.

Some weakening is expected after the depression moves over Belize on Monday, but it could strengthen on Tuesday if the center emerges in the Bay of Campeche.

Forecasters say the rains could cause flash flooding, especially in mountainous areas.
