Mexico braces itself for impact of Hurricane Katia

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

The U.S. National Hurricane Center said that as a depression, Katia was blowing maximum sustained winds of almost 35 miles (56 km) per hour and should dissipate over the mountains of central eastern Mexico later on Saturday.

National Hurricane Center (NHC) in an update at 11 a.m. ET Friday.

As of early Saturday morning, Katia was about 185 km west northwest of the Gulf Coast port of Veracruz, the NHC said.

This is the first time on record that the Atlantic has had two hurricanes with winds of more than 150 miles per hour at the same time, Colorado State University meteorologist Philip Klotzbach said. It then was downgraded to a tropical storm and forecasters expect it to dissipate Saturday.

Katia is still expected to cause chaos and leave 250 millimeters of rain in Veracruz and Puebla, as well as torrential storms in San Luis Potosí and Hidalgo and intense storm conditions in Tlaxcala, Oaxaca, Chiapas and Tabasco. Still, the center predicted the storm could bring 3 to 6 inches of additional rain to a region with a history of flooding and deadly mudslides. Katia was initially measured as a Category 1 storm with 75 miles per hour winds - far less powerful than Irma, which is quickly approaching Florida, and Jose which remains farther out in the Atlantic Ocean.
