The name “Grace” means elegance, refinement of movement and courteous good will, but the hurricane bearing that name is doing just the opposite. The second hurricane of the Atlantic Season for 2021, Grace is predicted to make two landfalls in Mexico and to produce heavy rainfall, strong wind gusts and storm surge that can create flash flooding, structural damage and power outages. The system currently does not pose a direct threat to Belize. However, according to AccuWeather, Grace was packing sustained winds of 80 miles per hour.
Up to this evening, the center of Grace was two hundred fifty miles to the east of Tulum, Mexico, and moving west-northwest at sixteen miles per hour. Later in the news, we will have another update from the National Meteorological Service.
