As of 11 a.m. (Eastern time) on October 4, the center of tropical depression was located about 210 miles South-East from the border of Nicaragua with Honduras. With winds up to 35 miles per hour the storm is moving North-West at a speed of about 7 mph.

While storm warnings are along the coast of Nicaragua and Honduras, there is expected 15 to 20 inches of rain, which can lead to life-threatening floods and landslides.
«The problem is that if the storm continues to move through the same trajectory, he will proceed to the warmer waters off of the Yucatan Peninsula, and then can turn into a really powerful hurricane,» said AccuWeather meteorologist Dan Kottlowski.

Forecasters warn that in areas of the Gulf coast from Florida to Alabama, Mississippi and Southeast Louisiana can be strong winds, coastal flooding and dangerous waves for the weekend and early next week.

For 2017 in the Atlantic ocean formed the 13 tropical storms, of which 8 became hurricanes.
