Tropical storm ashore in Mexico

September 7, 2010


— Forecasters say Tropical Storm Hermine has come ashore in extreme northeastern Mexico.

The U.S. National Hurricane Center in Miami said Hermine’s center first touched land Monday night about 40 miles south of Brownsville, Texas. It’s expected to move into south Texas.

Hermine has maximum sustained winds of about 65 mph and was moving north-northwest at about 14 mph. The storm was expected to bring as much as a foot of rainfall to some areas battered by Hurricane Alex in June.
