Tropical Storm Karl discarded deep rains on the Yucatan Peninsula on Thursday as it encouraged toward the Gulf of Mexico, where it was likely to raise steam and become a storm.In the Atlantic, storm could generate dangerous break currents along the U.S. East Coast over the weekend.
In Mexico, the supervision issued a storm watch for its eastern Gulf. It is expected to reach the coast on Saturday.
According to the U.S. National Hurricane Center in Miami, it has made a huge landfall on Yucatan regarding 30 miles up the shore from the Quintana Roo state capital of Chetumal on Wednesday, winds were blowing at the speed of  about 65 mph.
Pineda (owner of hotel about 5 miles south of Majahual) said "There is a lot of wind,"
Electricity went out for a short time around Majahual. But the town took an almost-direct hit from Category 5 Hurricane Dean in 2007 — the third most powerful Atlantic hurricane ever to hit land — and "this is nothing in comparison," said Pineda.
There were also reports of heavy rain and wind, downed trees and power outages at Karl's center passed close to the state capital,

Due to storm there is  doubt over the celebration area of Mexico's bicentennial anniversary of independence from Spain, while there was no immediate decision to cancel celebrations.
A hot storm watch that was issued for the west coast of the Yucatan peninsula was discontinued early Thursday.
