TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) — Hurricane Lisa made its way into Belize Wednesday evening as a strong category 1 system, carrying rain and wind to the southern Yucatan Peninsula.

Lisa has since weakened to a tropical storm, whose center is located west of Belize City, and is moving west at 12 mph.

Peak wind speeds are at 60 mph, based on National Hurricane Center information.

As Lisa travels over land through Thursday, weakening will continue as Lisa eventually becomes a tropical depression. It will still be able to trigger rounds of heavy rain and flooding in Belize, Guatemala, and southern Mexico as it moves slower and somewhat erratically.

Lisa's storm impacts will not be experienced anywhere along the Gulf coast or the Big Bend.
