MEXICO CITY (AP) -- Tropical Storm Delta is rapidly strengthening in the Caribbean, aiming to hit Mexico's Yucatan Peninsula potentially as a major hurricane before continuing on to strike the U.S. Gulf coast later in the week.

That part of Mexico is still soaked from Tropical Storm Gamma that hit its popular coastal resorts over the weekend and forced thousands from their homes.

Gamma weakened to a tropical depression Monday after leaving six dead in southeastern Mexico.

It continued to break up just north of the Yucatan Peninsula.

Delta had been forecast to strike western Cuba, but shifted a bit to west Monday putting it on a path to scrape the northeast tip of the Yucatan early Wednesday.
