Tropical Storm Karl forms in the Gulf off the southern coast of Mexico

MEXICO — Tropical Storm Karl formed off the southern Gulf Coast on Tuesday and is expected to meander through the Gulf for a few days without reaching hurricane strength.

The US National Hurricane Center said Karl had winds of 40 mph (65 km/h) on Tuesday afternoon. It was centered about 110 miles (180 km) east-northeast of the port city of Veracruz and was moving northwest at 6 mph (9 km/h).

Mexico declared a tropical storm warning from Veracruz northward to Cabo Rojo.

The center of the storm is expected to move north before changing course and heading inland later in the week.

Karl formed a day after former Hurricane Julia dissipated into the Pacific after directly or indirectly killing 28 people in Central America following landfall on the Caribbean coast of Nicaragua.
