Storm Katia weakens after reaching Mexican coast

10 September 2017

People pick up debris as Hurricane Irma howled past Puerto Rico after thrashing several smaller Caribbean islands, in Fajardo, Puerto Rico September 6, 2017.

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

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

Jose, which was upgraded to an "extremely dangerous" Category 4 hurricane Friday with 150 miles per hour winds, is following Irma's path and is forecast to come close to the already decimated Leeward Islands, including St. Martin and Barbuda.

Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto has warned on Thursday of the great danger of Katia for those areas recently damaged by a major quake in Mexico in a century.

State energy company Pemex has installations in and around the coast of Veracruz but has not reported any disruption to its operations there. Overnight projections of Irma's path showed less of a threat to the Carolinas as the monster storm appeared likely to move directly up the middle of Florida and curve inland.
