Hurricane Patricia has weakened to a tropical storm but still poses a risk of floods and landslides across northern Mexico according to forecasters.
Patricia peaked as the strongest hurricane recorded in the Americas but winds decreased rapidly to 80 km/h as the storm moved over land.
Thousands of residents and tourists on Mexico’s Pacific coast were evacuated and moved inland.
Patricia is now moving north-northeastward inland over northern Mexico.
U.S officials are watching the storm as it approaches Texas with heavy rains expected to saturate the already drenched state
