Category 1 Hurricane Katia makes landfall in Mexico

Category 1 Hurricane Katia makes landfall in Mexico”

Katia has moved into Mexico, now as a Tropical Storm packing 45 miles per hour winds.

The two people died in Xalapa, the capital of Veracruz state, when mud loosened from a hillside by Katia's rains trapped them in their home, Luis Felipe Puente, head of Mexico's national emergency services, told Reuters.

- Forecasters say Hurricane Katia is making landfall on Mexico's Gulf coast as a Category 1 storm.

The National Hurricane Center says Irma made landfall on the Camaguey Archipelago of Cuba late Friday and has maximum sustained winds of 160 miles per hour.

Mexico is also dealing with the aftermath of a powerful quake on Thursday night.

Veracruz state officials said in a statement on Friday that the storm could cause landslides and flooding, and urged people living below hills and slopes to be prepared to evacuate.

Katia is the 11th named storm this Atlantic hurricane season and follows both Hurricane Irma and Hurricane Jose - both of which are off to the east in the Atlantic.

Millions of Florida residents were ordered to evacuate after the storm killed 21 people in the eastern Caribbean and left catastrophic destruction in its wake.

"Katia is stationary and little overall motion is anticipated through late today, but then the hurricane is forecast to turn west-southwestward and approach the coast within the watch area late Friday or early Saturday".
