Hurricane Max has slammed into Mexico’s southern Pacific coast, dumping rain on an area east of the resort city of Acapulco before weakening into a tropical storm as it moved inland into Guerrero state.
Guerrero Governor Hector Astudillo warned the rain would continue all night. Near Acapulco, the Government worked feverishly to widen a channel to the sea to prevent a coastal lagoon from flooding.
The US National Hurricane Centre earlier i said the storm could bring ‘‘lifethreatening flash floods and rainfall’’ to Guerrero and Oaxaca states. — AP
