A new Tropical Storm has formed in the east pacific ocean several hundred miles of the coast of mainland Mexico.

Tropical Storm Douglas is currently heading North West deeper into the Pacific at 15 mph. The storm has maximum sustained winds of 40 mph. The good news is that it’s not expected to become a Hurricane but if it does would only be a category 1.

No matter what small vessels may be a risk from ocean swells near the coasts of Mexico. Douglas is the fourth Tropical Storm in the Pacific this season so far.
