As the hurricane season draws to a close, Hurricane Richard is approaching the coasts of Belize and Mexico’s Yucatán Peninsula. For its latest position and predicted path, see Mexico’s National Meteorological Service website. [After the event, hurricane information is stored in the same site’s Historical Hurricane Archive.]
