Tropical Storm Nate, which has killed at least 22 people in Central America, is taking aim at Caribbean resorts on Mexico's Yucatan peninsula on its way to the US Gulf Coast. It could strike the United States as a hurricane this weekend. Nate was blowing maximum sustained winds of 72km/h and was about 370km southeast of the Mexican holiday resort island of Cozumel early on Friday morning, according to the United States National Hurricane Center in Miami. The storm is expected to reach the eastern edge of the Yucatan peninsula, home to popular vacation destinations such as Cancun and Playa del Carmen, on Friday evening, the NHC said. Nate will likely strengthen to a hurricane by the time it hits the northern Gulf of Mexico, it added. Oil and natural gas producers began evacuating staff at US Gulf of Mexico platforms on Thursday. The storm doused Central America with heavy rains on Thursday, killing at least 11 people in Nicaragua, eight in Costa Rica, two in Honduras and one in El Salvador, local authorities said.
