Hurricane Katia bears down on quake-rattled Mexico

Hurricane Irma: Everything You Need to Know About This Monster Storm

The quake, the strongest to strike the country in more than 80 years, killed at least 61 people.

Tropical storm warnings are also announced in the northern part of Cabo Rojo to Rio Panuco as well as the southern areas of Laguna Verde to Puerto Veracruz.

In its 7 p.m. advisory, the National Hurricane Center said Katia now has maximum sustained winds of 105 miles per hour.

Katia has "worrying characteristics" as it is very slow moving and could dump a lot of rain on areas that have been saturated in recent weeks, Luis Felipe Puente, the chief of Mexico's national emergency services, told domestic television on Wednesday, reported Reuters.

The hurricane center said that Katia's maximum sustained winds are now down to near 40 miles per hour (65 kph) and that it is expected to drift east of the Sierra Madre mountains as it peters out.

Katia is expected to produce rainfall of 10 to 15 inches over northern Veracruz, eastern Hidalgo, and Puebla, the National Hurricane Center said. The forecasters are expecting to see the hurricane move slowly towards the Mexican coast on Friday, Sept. 8, before making a landfall on Saturday, Sept. 9.

Elsewhere, a Category 5 Hurricane Irma left a string of deaths and damage across the Caribbean, battering Cuba late Friday with winds of 160 miles per hour (257 kph) and bearing down on south Florida.

Katia is the 11th named storm this Atlantic hurricane season and follows Hurricane Irma and Hurricane Jose.

It made landfall near beach resort of Tecolutla in Veracruz.

In downtown Juchitan, the remains of brick walls and clay tile roofs cluttered streets as families dragged mattresses onto sidewalks to spend a second anxious night sleeping outdoors.
