Pamela moves inland after hitting Mexico’s Pacific coast

MEXICO CITY,  -- Wednesday's Tropical Storm Pamela moved inshore over Mexico's northwest region after it slammed into the coast north of Mazatlan earlier that day.

Pamela arrived in Mazatlan from 40 miles (65kms) north. This port city is also a popular destination for Mexican tourists.

Officials from Sinaloa, the northern state's civil defense agency, said that Pamela's winds and rains caused minor flooding in the city but not much damage.

According to the U.S. National Hurricane Center, Pamela's winds were at 45 mph (75 km/h) midday as it moved inshore. It was 170 miles (270 km) northeast of Mazatlan, and moving northeast at 25mph (40kph).

The hurricane center warned about the possibility of flash flooding in the affected areas.

Pamela's remaining parts were forecast to decrease as it crossed northern Mexico. They would then dissipate shortly before crossing the Texas border.
