Hurricane Orlene weakened to a tropical storm a few hours after making landfall in Mexico on Monday morning, September 3.
Destruction wrought last week by Hurricane Ian in Florida and North Carolina, Orlene seemed to sneak up on Mexico. United States Embassy and consulate officials had warned Americans on the country's Pacific coast to be prepared for what was expected to be a major hurricane.
But a few hours after Orlene made landfall in southwest Mexico, just north of the borders of the states of Nayarit and Sinaloa, it had weakened from a Category 1 hurricane to a tropical storm.
On Monday afternoon, Orlene was spinning 60 miles east of Mazatlán, a city on the Pacific coast in the state of Sinaloa.
The states of Nayarit also be affected by torrential rain, wind, and waves of 3 to 5 meters high. While the coasts of Baja California Sur and Colima could see waves of 1 to 2 meters high, according to the weather agency.
Local authorities said Orelene could bring between 6 inches and a foot of rain to parts of southwest Mexico through Tuesday, warning of potential flash flooding and possible landslides.
