Hurricane Ingrid forms in Gulf of Mexico, threatens Yucatan coastline

Ingrid has become the second hurricane of the Atlantic storm season off Mexico.

On Saturday afternoon, the storm was packing maximum sustained winds of 75 mph about 195 miles east of Tuxpan, Mexico.

It's likely to soon reach the coast, Bay News 9 meteorologist Diane Kacmarik said.

"There will be 20-plus inches of rain in some places," Kacmarik said, adding Ingrid will have no effect on Florida weather.

Authorities in Mexico have ordered evacuations of coastal residents.

Off Mexico's Pacific coast, Tropical Storm Manuel was moving with maximum sustained winds of 50 mph. It was 105 miles off the city of Lazaro Cardenas and 215 miles southeast of Manzanillo. A tropical storm warning is in effect from Acapulco to Manzanillo.

Manuel is expected to produce 10 to 15 inches of rain over parts of the Mexican states of Oaxaca and Guerrero, and life-threatening flash floods and mudslides are likely.

Elsewhere, the remnants of Tropical Storm Humberto were swirling in the Atlantic, far from land. It was expected to regenerate in a couple of days, according to the Hurricane Center.

  3. Review: Jason Aldean fires up a country-dude party at Tampa's MidFlorida Credit Union Amphitheatre

    Country music has a dude problem.

    I’m not talking about the proliferation of mindless bro country over the past half-decade, nor am I referring to the fact that most of Nashville’s best music these days comes not from said bros, from female singers and songwriters.
