Tropical Disturbance Two and

Tropical Depression Four

Tropical Disturbance Two is making landfall in Central America off the Caribbean, but it has yet to be determined if this severe storm will morph into a Tropical Depression or a Cyclone. It IS expected to dump double digit rainfall onto Belize and parts of Mexico as it makes it way west into the Pacific Ocean.

Pacific-bound Tropical Depression Four is fast-tracking NNE of Manila, Philippines with wave heights now at 10 feet.

Severe weather dropping very heavy rainfall is effecting the state of Coahuila in Northern Mexico where 1,000 people recently evacuated Piedras Negras. 10,000 houses and 40,000 people have been currently affected by the heavy rains from this storm.

Monsoon In India

River levels continue to rise in southern India where over 26 people have been killed in swirling waters. Early seasonal rain and flooding have impacted Nepal, New Delhi, and parts of the India/China border, but these Indian regions have suffered from droughts over the past years, and the heavy rains are actually welcomed.
