Tropical storm Lisa mounting up in the Caribbean Sea


The Gulf of Mexico and the Caribbean could be struck by a tropical storm in the next few days, according to reports.

On Monday, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) issued an advisory on Monday regarding the storm, which has been named tropical storm Lisa

At 11 a.m. ET, the agency said: Tropical storm conditions are possible in Jamaica today.”

The agency also issued an advisory for other countries about the storm.

“Interests along the coast of Central America, especially near Belize and the Yucatan Peninsula of Mexico, should monitor the progress of this system, additional watches and warnings will likely be required by late today.”

On Twitter, the National Hurricane Center gave its latest update about the storm and warned it will strengthen over the coming days.

The agency said Lisa is moving on a westward path, and the forecast models indicate that it will continue to do so. As of now, it does not appear the storm will hit the U.S., with the forecasts showing the storm should stay south of Cuba as it heads towards Central America.

“The storm should move westward to west-northwestward for the next day or two under a mid-level ridge to the north,” the National Hurricane Center said on its website. “As the ridge intensifies in a few days, Lisa is likely to move westward, or possibly a little south-of-west, while it approaches Belize.”

The storm comes weeks after Hurricane Ian caused significant devastation across the state of Florida.

Ian made landfall in Florida on September 28 as a Category 4 storm, with maximum sustained winds of 150 mph, before it weakened over land.

Considered one of the most severe hurricanes ever to hit Florida, Ian brought catastrophic flooding to the southwestern tip of the state. After the hurricane made landfall, an estimated 2.5 million people across Florida were hit with power outages according to, a website that tracks blackouts across the country.

Following the hurricane, U.S. President Joe Biden visited the state and gave a speech suggesting that the severity of the hurricane ended the debate on whether climate change was real.

“The reservoirs out west are down to almost zero, we are in a situation where the Colorado river looks more like a stream, there is a lot going on,” Biden said in the clip, which has now been viewed more than 325,000 times.

“The one thing I think this has finally ended is the discussion about whether or not there is climate change and we should do something about it.”
