Storm Olaf was downgraded to a tropical storm on September 10, after causing havoc in parts of Mexico’s Baja California Sur.
The National Hurricane Center said tropical storm conditions would continue in the area through Friday evening, although winds were predicted to diminish that night as the storm weakened and moved away from land.
The center further predicted that heavy rains associated with Olaf would pose a threat of significant and life-threatening flash flooding and mudslides.
