(Reuters) - BP Plc BP.L said on Monday that it is evacuating non-essential personnel from its four offshore platforms in the Gulf of Mexico as a precaution against Tropical Storm Delta.

Delta, which is located near Negril, Jamaica, is expected to become a hurricane on Tuesday before it nears western Cuba, the U.S. National Hurricane Center said.
