A tropical storm warning was issued from Punta Patuca, Honduras, to Puerto Cabezas, Nicaragua. The Nicaraguan government issued a yellow alert for the region.

The Hurricane Center reported that Hanna had maximum sustained winds near 40 mph (65 kph). The storm was expected to weaken as it moved inland and dissipate by Tuesday.

Monday afternoon, Hanna’s center was about 25 miles (40 kilometers) west-southwest of Cape Gracias a Dios, on the border between the two countries. The storm was heading west near 7 mph (11 kph).
