A category-one hurricane weakened into a tropical storm early Thursday after slamming into Mexico’s eastern coast with powerful winds and heavy rain capable of producing deadly flash floods.
Hurricane Franklin made landfall near the town of Lechuguillas, some 70 miles (115 kilometers) northwest of the port of Veracruz, the US National Hurricane Center reported at 0600 GMT.
That is the lowest level on the five-point scale. Veracruz state authorities nevertheless declared a Red Alert, and said the amount of damage would depend on how much water Franklin dumps, and where.
Franklin, the first hurricane of the 2017 season, was packing maximum sustained winds of 85 miles (140 kilometers) per hour when it struck the coast, the NHC said.
Three hours later Franklin weakened into a tropical storm as it moved inland, still bringing heavy rain and dangerous winds of 70 miles (110 kilometers) per hour, the NHC said in its 0900 GMT bulletin.
