Tropical depression threatens eastern Mexico

Posted: Updated:

MIAMI (AP) - A new tropical depression threatens to bring flooding to parts of eastern Mexico and is expected to strengthen to a tropical storm.

The depression's maximum sustained winds early Friday are near 35 mph (55 kph).

The depression is centered about 75 miles (120 kilometers) east-northeast of Veracruz, Mexico, and is moving west-southwest near 3 mph (6 kph). A tropical storm warning is in effect for Mexico's coast from Coatzacoalcos to Barra de Nautla.

The storm is expected to dump 10 to 15 inches of rain over a large part of eastern Mexico with 25 inches in some places.

Meanwhile far out over the Atlantic, Hurricane Humberto (oom-BEHR'-toh) is losing strength and is expected to weaken to a tropical storm.

Also, Gabrielle (ga-bree-EHL') has weakened to a tropical depression.
