NUEVO LAREDO, Mexico — Tropical Storm Hermine slammed into Mexico's northern Gulf coast near the US border late Monday with winds of 60 mph (95 kph), lashing Mexico and southern Texas with heavy rains that authorities warned could cause flash flooding.

Authorities in Mexico urged people to move to shelters while officials in Texas offered residents sandbags and put shelters on standby as Hermine neared. The storm was expected to cross the border in the coming hours after touching land in Mexico about 30 miles (45 kms) south of Brownsville, Texas. It was expected to push northward up Texas and weaken into a weaken into a tropical depression on Tuesday afternoon or evening.

Hurricane watches for the coasts of Mexico and Texas were discontinued but Hermine still threatened to bring as much as a foot of rainfall to areas battered by Hurricane Alex in June. Remnant rains from Alex killed at least 12 people in flooding in Mexico.
