Hurricane Nora was dumping heavy rain across north-west Mexico on Sunday night and was expected to do so for the next few days, according to the National Hurricane Center.
The National Hurricane Center said in a 9 p.m. CDT update that Nora’s centre was about 90 miles south-east of Los Mochis and was moving north-northwest at 19 mph with maximum sustained winds of 40 mph. Hurricane conditions are expected to last until Monday.
From Bahia Tempehuaya to Topolobampo, Mexico, a tropical storm warning was in effect.
Nora is moving toward the north-northwest and is expected to maintain this trajectory until it dissipates inland in 24 to 48 hours, the forecasters said.
“Nora is forecast to weaken inland during the next day or so,” it said.
Hurricane Nora made landfall on Mexico’s Pacific coast Saturday night.
