How to track Hurricane Jose and Hurricane Katia in real time

Storm Katia rapidly weakens after making landfall in Mexico

The National Hurricane Center predicts little movement for Katia over the next few days, but the forecast suggested it would become a hurricane before drifting toward the coast of the Mexican state of Veracruz on Thursday.

Both deaths occurred in the state capital Xalapa, after rains sparked a mudslide in the city's Luis Donaldo Colosio district, Xinhua cited the Governor as saying. This rainfall may cause life-threatening flash floods and mudslides, especially in the mountains.

Veracruz is home to numerous rivers and is a popular white-water rafting destination.

The governor of the Gulf coast state of Veracruz is reporting two deaths related to the arrival of Hurricane Katia, which hit the state overnight. Find us on Facebook too!

NHC noted that risky storm surge will raise water levels by as much as 5 to 7 feet above normal tide levels near and to the north of where Katia makes landfall.

It has been hurtling through the Caribbean been moving with sustained winds of close to 150mph - here's the latest on the hurricane. Near the coast, the surge will be accompanied by large and destructive waves.

Mexico is dealing with the aftermath of a huge quake that struck on Thursday night, and President Enrique Pena Nieto said on Friday that Katia could be especially risky in hillsides rocked by the magnitude 8.1 tremor.

To determine the strength of a storm, scientists measure the storm's barometric pressure using millibars.
