MEXICO CITY - Tropical Storm Helene formed in the southwestern Gulf of Mexico on Friday and pushed close to the coast of Mexico's Veracruz state, the US National Hurricane Center said.

Located about 65 miles (105 kilometers) east of Tuxpan, Mexico, Helene was packing maximum sustained winds of 40 miles per hour (65 kph), the NHC said in its bulletin at 10 p.m. CDT (0300 GMT Saturday).

The center of Helene will make landfall on Saturday, the NHC said.

A tropical storm warning was issued for a stretch of Mexico's Gulf coast from Barra de Nautla to La Cruz.
