Tropical Storm Alex is continuing to move into the southwestern Gulf of Mexico, after weakening to depression level strength. The storm is expected to regain speed in the next few days, as it moves over warmer waters, and could become a hurricane again while heading toward Mexico's Caribbean coast.

The country's hurricane center says wind speeds could reach up to 178 kilometers per hour. Alex soaked parts of Central America and Mexico's Yucatan Peninsula with torrential downpours on Sunday, leaving at least four people dead. The Mexican government remains on high alert, and has closed two oil ports. Meanwhile, hundreds of tourists are preparing to leave several resort islands ahead of the storm's anticipated arrival.
