While remnants of Tropical Storm Earl were helping fuel the formation of Tropical Storm Javier off Mexico’s Pacific coast early Monday Aug. 8, at least 40 people were reported killed by landslides in the Mexican states of Puebla and Veracruz after Earl hit eastern Mexico, according to the official Twitter account of National Civil Protection Coordinator Luis Puente.
Before becoming a tropical storm as it moved across the region and then being downgraded to a tropical depression, the storm was Hurricane Earl.
Rainfall totals of 3-6 inches (locally up to 10 inches) are expected over coastal parts of the Mexico’s Sinaloa and southern Sonora states into Baja California.
In addition, Javier may help to send a surge of tropical moisture into the Southwest U.S. by midweek, with locally heavy rain and flooding in parts of Arizona, New Mexico, Utah, and Colorado.
Javier formed partially from the remnants of Hurricane Earl, which impacted the Yucatan Peninsula and other parts of southeastern Mexico, as well as Belize and Honduras over the weekend and late last week.
As of Monday morning, Javier was not expected to directly impact the Yucatan Peninsula.
