EL PROGRESO, Honduras (Reuters) - Tropical Storm Gamma lashed Central America with heavy rain on Saturday, killing at least nine people and cutting off part of the Honduran coast as the 24th major storm in a record Atlantic hurricane season cut an erratic course toward Cuba. 

Slow-moving Gamma was expected to bypass Mexico's Yucatan peninsula, still recovering from a battering by Hurricane Wilma three weeks ago, and forecasters revised an earlier prediction to say that it probably would not directly hit southern Florida, where Wilma also wreaked havoc.
