Remnants of Tropical Storm Calvin over South Mexico

Since Sunday night Tropical Storm Calvin developed in the Eastern Pacific Ocean, made landfall, and weakened into a remnant low.

The storm strengthened into the third tropical storm of the Eastern Pacific Hurricane Season Sunday night and became the second to make landfall on Monday afternoon. The first storm to make landfall was Tropical Storm Beatriz.

The mountainous terrain of South Mexico caused the storm to fall apart quickly after landfall. The storm dissipated early Tuesday.

Due to heavy rains though the risk of flooding and mudslides is expected to continue through the middle of the week. Areas at high risk include the southern Mexican state of Oaxaca, southeastern Guerrero and southwestern Chiapas
