(AP) — Hurricane Delta made landfall in Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula on Wednesday as an extremely dangerous Category 2 storm, roaring ashore between Cancun and the resorts of Playa del Carmen and Cozumel.. The National Hurricane Center in Miami says satellite imagery, radar data from Cuba, and surface observations in Mexico indicate that Delta struck land around 5:30 a.m. local time as a Category 2 hurricane, sustaining top winds of 110 mph. Quintana Roo state’s governor is warning residents and tourists that it is the strongest storm since Hurricane Wilma in 2005. Forecasters predicted a storm surge of up to 13 feet along the low-lying resort studded coast.
