Still Stormy in Cancun, Dolly Moves North
Tropical Storm Dolly has passed Cancun but we are still experiencing heavy rains and thunderstorms. It seems to be worse than when TS Dolly was here. It's raining hard enough that I almost can't see across the street and we are experiencing quite a bit of lightning.
It rained off and on all day but right now it's pretty heavy. I drove through streets with water well up over the tire rims, when cars got out of the "puddles" you could see big puffs coming out of the exhaust pipes. I thought the Tracker was going to stall at one point, I was wondering if my feet were getting wet the water was so deep. I did see some city trucks out cleaning the drains which was encouraging, first time for everything I guess.
Tropical Storm Dolly continues to move over the Gulf of Mexico towards the northeastern coast states of Mexico and Texas. She seems to be gathering some strength as she moves over the warm waters and outer bands are starting to form. There are hurricane and tropical storm warnings for the areas in the path of this storm. She is still not a hurricane, but the warnings and watches are in anticipation of a worsening storm in the next 36 hours.
