  • Hurricane Katia slams into Mexico's Veracruz state

In its 4 p.m. advisory, the National Hurricane Center said Katia now has maximum sustained winds of 105 miles per hour.

Storm Katia rapidly weakened on Saturday after it made landfall near the working-class beach resort of Tecolutla in the state of Veracruz on the Mexican Gulf coast, the U.S. National Hurricane Center (NHC) said.

Instead, Katia will churn across mainland Mexico after passing through Veracruz, according to a projected path by the National Hurricane Center. It's moving west-southwest at 7 miles per hour.

The governor of the Gulf coast state of Veracruz is reporting two deaths related to the arrival of Hurricane Katia, which hit the state overnight.

Only 26 minutes separated the announcements of Irma and Katia making landfall. Isolated maximum amounts of 15 inches are possible in northern Veracruz. Near the coast, the surge will be accompanied by large and destructive waves. Here's the five-day track as of 7 a.m. Thursday.

Hurricane Katia is expected to make landfall in Mexico.

The storm was expected to stall near the Sierra Madre Mountains, the centre said.

"Everyone who lives in an area at risk of landslides must vacate their homes, because it will continue to rain, the ground is getting softer and we should not run risks", said Yunes. "The previous record was [Typhoon] Haiyan in the [Northwest] Pacific at 24 hours".

On August 9, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administrated (NOAA) forecasted an above-normal hurricane season, perhaps the most active since 2010.
