Tropical Storm Hanna has formed off the coast of Nicaragua and is expected to move inland by Monday afternoon, according to the National Hurricane Center.
"The center of Hanna is very close to the coast of northeastern Nicaragua," the Hurricane Center said Monday morning. "The system is moving west-southwestward ... and should be inland over Nicaragua by this afternoon. A similar motion should continue for the next 24 hours or so, with the cyclone dissipating by late Tuesday."
Hanna was expected to produce 10 to 12 inches of rain, raising the risk of flash flooding and mud slides, according to the Hurricane Center.
