Tropical Storm 25, now formally known as Gamma, continues its trek east moving at 2 mph. The storm is expected to veer southwest and meander around the southern portion of the Gulf of Mexico into the start of next week.
For the most part, Gamma is mostly going to impact Central America, bringing heavy rainfall that could result in “life-threatening flash flooding and mudslides.”
