Hurricane Katia Brings Heavy Rain to Mexico a Day After Quake

Tropical Storm Katia Weakens As It Enters Mexico

While Category 5 Hurricane Irma is now ransacking the Caribbean and posing a threat to Florida this weekend, those in Mexico may also experience a major weather disturbance with the arrival of Hurricane Katia.

The light damage so far is good news to national disaster officials who are already coping with the aftermath of a magnitude 8.1 quake that killed more than 60 people in southern Mexico.

Tropical Storm Katia Weakens As It Enters Mexico

The country has been dealing with the arrival of the Gulf coast hurricane while parts of it are already in ruins following a magnitude 8.1 natural disaster.

Areas of Mexico to the north of Cabo Rojo and to the south of Laguna Verde are under a tropical-storm warning. Katia made landfall Friday night as a hurricane.

The injured man, identified as Imam Hussain, was taken to Lok Nayak Jai Prakash Narayan Hospital in Daryaganj, Sharma added. Last month, 22 people were killed and over 150 injured, after 13 coaches of the Utkal Express jumped the rails.

Luis Felipe Puente, head of Mexico's national emergency services, said this week that Katia has "worrying characteristics" because it is very slow-moving and could dump a lot of rain on areas that have been saturated in recent weeks.

Katia was downgraded from a hurricane to a tropical storm as it was about 110 miles (175 km) northwest of Veracruz, Mexico with sustained winds of 45 mph (70 kmh), the center said in an advisory. Forecasters expect the hurricane to weaken quickly over the next 24 hours.

Hurricane Irma, which is Category 4, is on track to hit Florida after heading over parts of Cuba and the central Bahamas, according to the agency.

It may also hit the land around the same time as the expected landfall of Hurricane Irma in southern Florida, while another weather disturbance called Hurricane Jose which is now situated around 1,000 miles to the east is also expected to hit the same Caribbean islands that Irma plowed through this week. Hardest-hit was Juchitan, Oaxaca, where 36 people died and a third of the city's homes collapsed or were otherwise rendered uninhabitable, President Enrique Pena Nieto said late Friday in an interview with the Televisa news network.
