Katia Weakens To A Tropical Depression As It Moves Into Mexico

All eyes are on Hurricane Irma as it moves toward Florida, but it's not alone.

There are now three hurricanes in the Atlantic.

Katia has been downgraded from a tropical storm to a tropical depression as it moves further into Mexico, the National Hurricane Center said Saturday (Sept. 9).

Check out KITV's Hurricane Irma section. At the same time, Irma strengthened back into a Category 5 storm Friday night, after weakening to a Category 4 earlier in the day. Gusty winds are also expected within the areas where the hurricane is expected to pass by. Prime Minister Gaston Browne said it's possible a mandatory evacuation may be ordered by Friday.

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

The storm originally made landfall just north of Tecolutla, Mexico Friday night as a Category 1 hurricane with 75 miles per hour winds.

The good news with Jose is after passing the Less Antilles, the storm is expected to go northwest into the open Atlantic Ocean.

Katia made landfall as a hurricane late Friday (Sept. 8) north of Tecolutla, the National Hurricane Center said. It's not close enough to cause direct destruction but near enough to bring another potential round of wind and rain to the ravaged islands.

Katia became a Category 1 hurricane in the southern Gulf of Mexico not too far from where Harvey formed two weeks ago.

The U.S. National Hurricane Center says Katia's maximum sustained winds have dropped to 75 miles per hour as it hits land north of Tecolutla, in Veracruz state.
