Tropical Storm Barry lashes Mexico, no one hurt

Veracruz, Mexico (AFP) June 20, 2013


The second tropical storm of the Atlantic hurricane season, Barry, made landfall Thursday in eastern Mexico, bringing heavy rains but causing no damage or casualties.

The US National Hurricane Center in Miami said Barry hit land in the state of Veracruz at about 1300 GMT, packing maximum sustained winds of 65 kilometers (40 miles) per hour. The storm lost steam as it moved inland.

Civil protection officials in Veracruz said there had been no reports of damage, though residents were warned to take precautions, with flash floods still a possibility. Emergency shelters were set up.

A meteorologist at Mexico's national weather service, Alberto Albarran, told AFP he expected significant rainfall in the states of Puebla, Hidalgo and Oaxaca.

Rainfall totals could be as high as 25 centimeters (10 inches), US forecasters said.

Earlier this month, the first tropical storm of the Atlantic season, Andrea, caused severe crop damage in Cuba and damaged more than 1,900 homes.

The Atlantic hurricane season started June 1 and runs through November 30.

Scientists at the US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration have predicted that the six-month Atlantic season will see 13 to 20 named storms, seven to 11 hurricanes and three to six major hurricanes.
