Hurricane Katia Blamed for 2 Deaths in Mexico

MEXICO CITY – Rains from Hurricane Katia caused a mudslide that left two people dead in Xalapa, capital of the Gulf coast state of Veracruz, Mexican authorities said Saturday.

Four other people were rescued safe and sound, national emergency services coordinator Luis Felipe Puente said during a television interview.

Katia, which made landfall Friday night as a Category 1 hurricane, rapidly weakened, but could dump as much as 150 mm (6 inches) of additional rain in Veracruz and the neighboring states of Puebla, Oaxaca and San Luis Potosi, according to Mexico’s National Meteorological Service.

Flooding affected 26 municipalities in central Veracruz and 345 people are in shelters, Puente said.

Mudslides have also occurred in Puebla, but officials have received no reports of casualties there, he said.
