Nana weakens to a Tropical Storm

Hurricane Nana made landfall in Belize around 1:00 am on Thursday morning, pelting a sparsely populated stretch of the Caribbean coast with heavy rain and wind before weakening to a tropical storm. However, the U.S. National Hurricane Center reported Thursday morning that Nana was centered about 70 miles southwest of Belize City, with maximum sustained winds that had decreased to 70 mph. Heavy rains were expected in Belize and northern Honduras. Meanwhile, forecasters say Nana will weaken rapidly as it moves inland.
