Agatha, the first tropical storm of the 2022 hurricane season in the Pacific, has formed off Mexico’s southern coast.
The National Hurricane Center says Agatha is expected to become a hurricane and head towards land.
On Saturday, the center of the tropical storm was located about 355 kilometers southwest of Puerto Angel, with winds of 75 kph.
The storm was moving west at 7 kph, but was expected to take a turn northward.
A hurricane watch was issued for parts of the coast of the southern state of Oaxaca, where Agatha could make landfall by Tuesday.
