As Tropical Storm Laura looses further, a new tropical storm has formed in the Pacific.

Tropical storm Marie formed in the Pacific about 575 miles southwest of the southern tip of Mexico’s Baja California peninsula.

The Pacific origin, Marie has maximum sustained winds near 50 mph and is moving near 9 mph to the northwest, away from Mexico. This adds fears of dangers and uncertainties in the gulf since these hurricanes and storms are ending up becoming extremely destructive. People are slowly recovering from hurricane Ike which rendered both wildlife and humans homeless a week or so ago.

Tropical storm Marie is gradually gaining strength but has not reached threatening speeds which could eventually force warnings. Marie is under watch and the National Hurricane center is monitoring its growth since its in its early stages of formation and movement.
