Among Nana's likely effects is a "dangerous" storm surge that will raise sea level up to 5 feet.
El Salvador's Interior Minister Mario Duran Wednesday reported that his country issued a forecast alert for the possible increase in rainfall due to tropical storm Nana, which is passing through the neighboring countries of Guatemala and Honduras.
Nana is in the Caribbean Sea near 17 degrees north latitude and 81.8 degrees west longitude about 290 kilometers northeast of Puerto Lempira, in Honduras.
The U.S. National Hurricane Center (NHC) said that the Nana storm threatens to become a hurricane before reaching the coast of Belize, between 80 and 90 kilometers north of the Roatan island in Honduras.
The storm is moving at 18 miles per hour, but it will slow down during the day. Among Nana's likely effects is a "dangerous" storm surge that will raise sea level up to 5 feet above the normal tidal rise in and around the landfall area.
