Deadly Hurricane Newton Downgraded to Tropical Storm


A deadly Hurricane Newton, responsible for at least five deaths in Mexico, made a second landfall on the mainland earlier today before being downgraded to a tropical storm.

The storm first made landfall in Cabo San Lucas yesterday (Sept. 6) where it reportedly left minimal damage.

Newton made landfall for a second time near Bahia Kino and weakened to a tropical storm as it made its way towards the US border. Heavy rains are expected in Arizona and New Mexico.

In parts of Cabo San Lucas, it’s reported the storm knocked out power, broke windows and blew down palm trees along the coastal boulevard. The government of Mexico has discontinued all coastal watches and warnings.
