U.S weather forecasters say Hurricane Wilma has weakened to a category four storm but remains extremely dangerous.
A statement from the National Hurricane Center says Wilma is packing winds near 250-kilometers per hour and is located 380-kilometers southeast of Cozumel, Mexico. It warns that the storm could strengthen again later today.
Forecasters say Wilma is moving northwesterly at 13-kilometers per hour and that computer models show it turning sharply toward the east and the Florida coast later this week.
Warnings are in effect for areas on the Yucatan peninsula from the Nicaragua border north through Honduras. At least 10 people in Haiti were killed in mudslides caused by the storm.
