Havana, Jun 20 (Prensa Latina) Tropical Storm Alberto, first of the 2024 Atlantic hurricane season, is expected to weaken rapidly on Thursday as it moves onshore, and it is likely to dissipate over Mexico, posing no danger to Cuba.

Alberto maintained maximum sustained winds of 65 kilometers per hour, with a minimum pressure of 995 hectopascals, and moved west-southwest, with a trajectory speed of 15 kilometers per hour.

The tropical storm-force winds extended up to 665 kilometers north of the center.
