Tropical Storm Lisa has spun up in the Caribbean Sea south of Jamaica, on track to strike Belize late Wednesday as the 12th storm of this year’s Atlantic hurricane season.

Lisa’s top winds have reached 40 miles (64 kilometers) per hour south of Kingston, Jamaica, and it was moving west at 14 mph, the US National Hurricane Center said in an 11 a.m. advisory. The storm is forecast to reach hurricane strength with 75 mph winds Wednesday just before it makes landfall in Belize.
