Nora down to tropical storm, causing flooding


MEXICO CITY >> Hurricane Nora caused floods and landslides along Mexico’s Pacific coast Sunday, while making landfall again and passing just inland of the Mazatlan resort area, then veered into the Gulf of California and weakened into a tropical storm.

At least two people were injured and six fishermen were reported missing at sea. Rescue teams were searching for the fishermen, who had left port in Guerrero state Wednesday, said Adm. Julio César Pescina of the Mexican navy.

Communitie­s in the coastal states of Michoacan, Colima and Jalisco experience­d heavy rain and rough surf as the storm moved northward hugging the shoreline. The state government in Jalisco said flooding damaged 500 homes and two people were injured in a landslide.

On Sunday, firefighte­rs and other emergency workers worked to drain water that flooded some streets in the center of Puerto Vallarta, the tourist destinatio­n.
