Hurricane Willa bears down on Mexico
- Hurricane Willa crashed ashore in western Mexico Tuesday, lashing the Pacific coast with powerful winds and heavy rain before weakening to a tropical depression as it moved inland.
Torrential rains began in the afternoon, and emergency officials said they had evacuated more than 4,250 people in coastal towns and set up 58 shelters before the risky storm.
There could be 1/2 to 1 1/2 inches of rain and strong gusts of wind up to 15 to 20 miles per hour along the coast, the service said Thursday morning.
Farther to the south, the remnants of Tropical Storm Vicente brought heavy rain that caused deadly flooding and mudslides.
Willa briefly reached Category 5 strength Monday but weakened to a Category 3 hurricane when it made landfall Tuesday and quickly lost steam after that.
"An extremely unsafe storm surge is likely along portions of the coast of southwestern Mexico in southern Sinaloa and Nayarit, especially near and to the south of where the center of Willa makes landfall", the US Hurricane Center announced Tuesday morning.
