Ingrid Weakens to Tropical Depression Moving Inland in Mexico

Storm's maximum sustained winds drop to 30 mph

Tropical Depression Ingrid was producing torrential rains and flooding in parts of northeastern Mexico as it slowly headed inland Monday night, the National Hurricane Center in Miami said.

As of 11 p.m., the storm had maximum sustained winds of just 30 mph as it moved west at 5 mph about 10 miles west of Ciudad Victoria.

Ingrid was expected to bring 10-15 inches of rain over a large part of eastern Mexico with isolated amounts of 25 inches possible. The rains are likely to result in life-threatening flash floods and mudslides.

Ingrid weakened from a hurricane to a tropical storm as it made landfall in Mexico Monday morning, the National Hurricane Center said. The center of Ingrid made landfall near La Pesca between 7 and 8 a.m.

It was further downgraded to a tropical depression Monday afternoon as it continued to move inland.

All coastal warnings have been discontinued.

A slow motion toward the west or west-southwest was expected until Ingrid dissipates on Tuesday.

Meanwhile, Humberto became a tropical storm again Monday about 1,200 miles southwest of the Azores, according to the NHC.

As of 11 p.m., Humberto, which became the first hurricane of the 2013 season last week, had maximum sustained winds of 40 mph as it remained stationary about 1,215 miles southwest of the Azores. Humberto was expected to begin slowly moving toward the north-northwest by early Tuesday.

There were no coastal watches or warnings in effect.
