Satellite Shows Agatha's Landfall in Southeastern Mexico

Hurricane Agatha made landfall near the town of Puerto Angel, Mexico, on Monday, May 30, the National Hurricane Center (NHC) said.

Satellite imagery provided by the NOAA shows the first hurricane of the season, carrying winds of 105 mph.

It was the strongest May hurricane on record to make landfall on the Pacific coast of Mexico since record keeping began in 1949, the NHC said.

The storm weakened to a tropical depression by Tuesday morning. Life-threatening flash flooding and mudslides were possible in southeastern Mexico, according to the NHC. Credit: NOAA Satellites via Storyful
