    you did hear right!! Tropical Storm dolly is directly over cancun, hopefully flights are going in and out........... I think you should be ok!

    -- A tropical storm warning remained in effect Monday as Tropical Storm Dolly moved over Mexico's Yucatan Peninsula.


    Tropical Storm Dolly, here at 5:15 a.m. ET Monday, could become a hurricane by Tuesday, forecasters say.

    Dolly has spurred storm warnings from the Mexico-Belize border northward to the city of Campeche, on the opposite side of the Yucatan Peninsula. The warning encompasses the tourist resort of Cancun.

    At 5 a.m. ET Monday, the storm was about 150 miles (240 kilometers) east of Progreso, Mexico.

    The National Hurricane Center said the storm is moving northwest at about 15 mph (24 kph) and is expected to cross the Yucatan Peninsula and enter the Gulf of Mexico later Monday.

    By Tuesday, Dolly could become a hurricane, the hurricane center reported.

    Meanwhile, forecasters dropped warnings for the North Carolina coast after Tropical Storm Cristobal began turning away from land. Storm warnings that had been posted for the North Carolina coast were lifted Sunday night

    Dolly is past Cancun now. And it was pretty much a non-event here. The rain came in bands, so the city's storm drains had time to keep up with the water and we had no flooding that I know of. From what I saw Dolly brought no more rain that our average un-forecasted tropical shower.

    If it caused storm surge that will mean some beach erosion I imagine.

    Flying out of DFW, the only problem might be having to fly around dolly a little bit. Might keep you in the air a little longer.

    Yes, it's gone now.

    A few rumbles of thunder and occasional rain, but it will only get better from hereon.
