Heavy rain and wind from Tropical Storm Carlotta lashed Mexico’s Pacific coast southeast of Acapulco ahead of its expected landfall late Saturday or early Sunday.
Carlotta, the third named storm of the Pacific hurricane season, was meandering just off Mexico’s coast, according to the U.S. National Hurricane Center.
It said that Carlotta had maximum sustained winds near 50 mph (85 kph), and its center was located about 70 miles (115 kilometers) south-southeast of Acapulco. The storm was drifting northward Saturday afternoon.
The hurricane center says the storm threatens torrential rains for the coastline of the southern states of Guerrero and Oaxaca, with up to 10 inches possible in some areas. Flash flooding and mudslides are also possible.
