MIAMI (AP) - Matthew has weakened to a tropical depression and is expected to dissipate in a day or two.
Forecasters at the U.S. National Hurricane Center in Miami say that the storm is still soaking Belize, however. And it's expected to continue producing rain even after the tropical depression dissipates.
On Saturday afternoon, Matthew's winds were at 35 mph (55 kph).
The governments of Belize and Honduras canceled all storm warnings after Matthew weakened.
In Honduras, Matthew toppled power lines and left thousands without power for hours. Forecasters warned that heavy rains threaten to cause flooding and mudslides in disaster-prone parts of several Central American nations.
