Cruise lines are changing itineraries in the Caribbean as a deadly weather system now named Tropical Storm Earl heads towards Mexico’s Yucatan peninsula.
Carnival Cruise Line, Royal Caribbean International and Norwegian Cruise Line are reported to have altered some cruises as a result.
The US National Hurricane Centre in Miami says Earl is threatening to bring heavy rains, flooding and high winds to Honduras, Belize and Mexico.
A hurricane watch has been issued for part of the coast of Mexico.
At least nine people died on Monday due to extreme weather in Haiti and the Dominican Republic as the storm passed over the Caribbean.
Six of the victims were passengers on board a bus that caught fire in the town of Nagua on the north coast of the Dominican Republic when it was hit by tumbling power lines. Three people drowned when their tour boat capsized.
The Foreign and Commonwealth Office issued alerts for travellers to Belize, Honduras and the Yacatan peninsula from today (Wednesday).
It warns that the tropical cyclone developing in the Caribbean Sea may bring hazardous sea and weather conditions to the region. This follows tropical storm warnings for Jamaica and the Cayman Islands.
