Tropical Storm Gamma kills six in Honduras, Belize

Tropical Storm Gamma deluged the Caribbean coast of Central America on Saturday, killing at least six people - three in flooding in Honduras and three in the crash of a small plane belonging to a Belize lodge owned by US filmmaker Francis Ford Coppola. Gamma, the 24th named storm of an already record-breaking Atlantic hurricane season, was drifting erratically off the coast of northern Honduras and was not likely to strengthen into a hurricane, according to the US National Hurricane Center. With maximum sustained winds of 45 mph (75 kph), the storm's forecast path shifted late Saturday to the southeast, indicating that Gamma's center could move over central Cuba and south of the Florida Keys by early next week.
