Hurricane Rina is headed toward Mexico's Yucatan Peninsula and Caribbean beach resorts, the National Hurricane Center reports.

Early projections on the center’s website show the storm headed toward Cuba and the west coast of Florida by the weekend and into early next week. It is too soon to know, however, what path the storm will take.

Rina, located about 215 miles southwest of Grand Cayman and 305 miles east-southeast of Chetumal, Mexico, is a Category 2 hurricane with winds of about 100 miles an hour.

The storm is slowly moving west-northwest, and additional strengthening is expected. Rina could become a major hurricane by tonight or early Wednesday, the hurricane center said.
