MIAMI (CBSMiami) – Say adios to what once was Tropical Storm Franklin.
Franklin made landfall over overnight as a Category 1 hurricane in the Mexican state of Veracruz near the town of Lechuguillas. It then steadily lost its oomph as it moved west over Mexico.
At 11 a.m., what was left of the system was about 60 miles north-northwest of Mexico City, Mexico.
Maximum sustained winds have decreased to near 30 mph with higher gusts. Additional weakening is expected during the next day or so.
All Tropical Storm Warnings and Watches have been discontinued.
The remnants of Franklin are expected to produce total rainfall accumulations of 4 to 8 inches with isolated maximum amounts of 15 inches possible across the Mexican states of northern Veracruz, Puebla, Tlaxcala, eastern Guanajuato, Hidalgo, Queretaro and eastern San Luis Potosi in eastern Mexico. These rains are capable of producing life-threatening flash floods and mudslides.
