Default Two tropical storms to make landfall in Mexico on Tuesday

Two tropical storms to make landfall in Mexico on Tuesday
Full story:

Hurricane Willa and tropical storm Vicente approaching western Mexican
coast, with landfalls just hours apart.

by Kevin Corriveau

Mexico's Pacific coast will be pounded on Tuesday by two storms headed
its way, each with its distinct characteristics.

The larger of the two storms is Hurricane Willa, currently about 300km
southwest of Mazatlan in Mexico, with winds touching 230kph.

Initially labelled a Category 5 storm, Willa weakened slightly and is
now a Category 4 but still "extremely dangerous", storm. Before making
landfall later on Tuesday, it is expected to further weaken to a
Category 3 or a strong Category 2 storm.

But the US National Hurricane Centre has warned Willa was still likely
to bring "life-threatening storm surge, wind and rainfall" to parts of
west-central and southwestern Mexico.

The other storm, Vicente, formed off the southern coast of Guatemala
last weekend and continues to track northwest, parallel to the coastline.

In doing so, many areas stretching from southern Guatemala to Oaxaca
state in Mexico have seen exceptional flooding.

Torrential rainfall caused the Valle Nacional river to burst its banks
close to the town of Chiltepic in Oaxaca.
