Tropical Storm Paula forms in the southwest Caribbean Sea

A large area of low pressure in the southwest Caribbean Sea has been upgraded to Tropical Storm Paula, the 16th named storm of the 2010 hurricane season.

The storm has sustained winds of nearly 60 mph. It is moving northwest at 8 mph.

Paula is expected to stay near the coast of Central America for the next couple of days. It is likely to develop further in the warm Caribbean waters and become a hurricane.

A hurricane warning has been issued for the Yucatan coast of Mexico, and tropical storm warnings have been issued for the coast of Central America.

By later this week, the storm is expected to move, though its path is uncertain.

Some forecast models turn it west, while others show it moving north or even northeast.

  5. No easy answer to the Dunedin parking question

    Local Government

    DUNEDIN — Nothing has been more divisive in this city than the issue of paid parking.

    A server at Cafe Alfresco (background) claims Dunedin's new paid parking has cost him money. Dunedin began a paid parking last October. Nine months in, residents, business owners and city officials all share mixed feelings. In October, when the one-year program ends, the city will have until November to come up with another solution to its parking woes, or continue the paid parking program at the risk of angering locals.JIM DAMASKE   |   Times
