Hurricane Beryl continues its destructive streak across the Caribbean and is now headed toward Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula. The deadly storm has claimed at least nine lives so far.

Beryl passed just south of Jamaica —avoiding a direct hit— but still caused major damage across the island. 

The storm is now headed towards Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula, where it is expected to hit early Friday.
