Tropical Storm Beatriz made landfall on Mexico’s Pacific coast with the threats of more heavy rain, flash flooding and mudslides, which will continue through Friday. The center of Beatriz is located 55 miles north-northeast of Puerto Angel, Mexico, and is moving north-northeast at around 7 mph. Beatriz is forecast to move across southern Mexico toward the

Heavy rain is also anticipated in the Yucatan peninsula. READ MORE
