Hurricane Ingrid slides toward Mexico
Tropical Storm Ingrid has become Hurricane Ingrid, and is heading for Mexico, according to the National Hurricane Center in Miami.
The category 1 hurricane has maximum sustained winds of about 80 miles per hour and is likely to grow stronger over the next two days before making landfall Monday, the hurricane center reported Saturday. The storm is about 35 miles wide and the current course appears to take it over Tampico on the Mexican coast. The storm does not appear to threaten the U.S. gulf coast, but may cause some rain and cooler temperatures.
The NHC expects Mexico to receive between 10 and 25 inches of rain, bringing a threat of flash floods and mudslides.
