ACAPULCO, Mexico (AP) — Hurricane Ingrid and Tropical Storm Manuel have already claimed at least a dozen lives in Mexico, even before making landfall.
In the southern Pacific Coast state of Guerrero, rains unleashed by Manuel resulted in the deaths of six people when their SUV lost control on a highway headed for the tourist resort of Acapulco. Another five people died in landslides in Guerrero and Puebla states, while the collapse of a fence killed another person in Acapulco.
The eye of Manuel is churning very near Mexico's southwest Pacific shoreline, while on the other side of the country, thousands on Mexico's Gulf Coast sought shelter from Ingrid amid the threat of heavy rains, dangerous flash floods and mudslides.
The National Hurricane Center in Miami says the slow-moving Ingrid could reach the Mexican mainland early tomorrow.
This afternoon Ingrid had top sustained winds of 85 mph, while Manuel was nearing hurricane strength with 70 mph winds.
