Tropical Storm Grace turned into a hurricane Wednesday and is now heading towards Mexico.

With 75 mph winds, Grace is expected to bring heavy rainfall, hurricane-force winds, flash flooding and mudslides as it nears the Cayman Islands. It is expected to hit Mexico late Wednesday or early Thursday.

“Preparation to protect life and property should be rushed to completion,” the National Hurricane Center said in a statement.

Authorities have been sharing photos of dispatched equipment on Twitter as they prepare for the approaching hurricane.

A hurricane warning is also in effect for the Yucatan Peninsula from Cancun to Punta Herrero, including Cozumel, CNN noted.

NHC said swells across the area are likely to cause life-threatening surf and rip current conditions.

The Cayman Islands, which may get 4 to 8 inches and an isolated amount up to 12 inches of rain from the storm, are already under these conditions brought by Grace.

Jamaica could also be affected by Grace and is at risk of possible mudslides, the NHC said.

Before developing into a hurricane, Grace had already caused extreme devastation, hitting earthquake-stricken Haiti on Tuesday.

Grace is just one of the three active storms in the Atlantic Ocean. Both Fred and Henri have also been unleashed this week, causing major flooding and power outages.
