Storm Katia rapidly weakens after making landfall in Mexico

Hurricanes come from West Africa, 4 other facts you did not know about them

People cover the windows of their property ahead of Hurricane Katia, in Vega de Alatorre, Mexico September 8, 2017.

As of its 2 a.m. advisory, the National Hurricane Center said Katia was 180 miles east-southeast of Tampico, Mexico, and 165 miles north-northeast of Veracruz, Mexico.

Forecasters said Hurricane Katia could have "major" strength when it makes landfall in Mexico.

The storm was expected to stall near the Sierra Madre Mountains, the centre said.

Category 1 is the NHC's weakest hurricane designation.

But Querrey wouldn't win another point, with Anderson reeling off the last three to end the match after almost 3½ hours. Momentum swung firmly in Carreno Busta's favour at 3-4 in the second set after the Spaniard fell behind 0-40.

Katia was a smaller hurricane in comparison to more risky Irma and Jose.

Meanwhile, Mexico is dealing with the aftermath of a powerful quake on Thursday night. According to meteorologists, Hurricane Katia will cause serious damage in the center-north of the state of Veracruz.

Mexican emergency workers are also scrambling to respond to an 8.1-magnitude natural disaster that struck off the country's southern Pacific coast late Thursday, killing at least 61 people. Millions of Florida residents were ordered to evacuate after the storm killed 21 people in the eastern Caribbean and left catastrophic destruction in its wake.

This is the first time on record that the Atlantic has had two hurricanes with winds of more than 150 miles per hour at the same time, Colorado State University meteorologist Philip Klotzbach said.

State energy company Pemex has installations in and around the coast of Veracruz but has not reported any disruption to its operations there.
