Mexico's West Coast Hit With Flooding as Remnants of Pamela Move Towards Texas

Parts of Mexico’s west coast were hit with intense flooding after Hurricane Pamela made landfall northwest of Mazatlan, a resort town on the Pacific coast, on October 13.

Footage released by authorities shows emergency crews travelling through floodwaters in Nayarit and working to clear inundated roads on Wednesday.

Pamela made landfall as a hurricane and was later downgraded to a tropical depression by Mexican authorities.

The National Hurricane Center said Pamela was dissipating over northeastern Mexico and that the storm’s remnants would bring heavy rain to Texas and Oklahoma late on Wednesday. Credit: Proteccion Civil Mexico via Storyful
