Saturday, October 24, 2015. BMG: Hurricane Patricia was downgraded to a tropical depression this morning as it traveled inland alerting officials in Mexico and the US to shift their focus to potential flooding and mudslides that could follow the storm’s massive rainfall.
That volume of water could cause rivers to flood, and undermine the soil, leading to possible mudslides. Hurricane Patricia was labeled as the most powerful hurricane ever in the Western Hemisphere and weakened severely over the course of last night after it hit the Mexican State of Jalisco to a tropical storm.
Early this morning, it was downgraded again to a tropical depression at 10:00 local time but residents of that country have been warned that massive rainfall could still cause flooding and landslides.
So far, Hurricane Patricia has not resulted in any deaths or major damages.
