BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2022 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — We fully appreciate how absurd this sounds, but Tropical Storm Agatha, which is on the west side of Mexico, could become something of note for Florida and the rest of the Gulf Coast.

There is no need to panic. But as hurricane season approaches in just days, every system is a reminder that preparing now for what could happen at some point over the summer months is never a bad idea. For Agatha, there is the possibility that the system will cross over Mexico and into the Gulf of Mexico where it could intensify. Anyone who follows hurricanes knows that never a good thing.


For now, the National Hurricane Center says that Agatha is expected to strengthen to hurricane status as it nears the southern coast of Mexico. In the best case scenario, the storm dissipates over land. A hurricane watch is in effect for the coast of Mexico from Salina Cruz to Punta Maldonado.

We note that Agatha isn’t even on the list of storm names that is front and center during hurricane seasons. It’s a Pacific storm which uses a different list. Our first storm for 2022 will be “Alex.”
