Hurricane Franklin Unleashes Might on Mexico

Posted: Updated:
Veracruz, Mexico -

Hurricane Franklin roared ashore with winds nearing 100 mph on Mexico's Central Gulf coast early on Thursday, threatening to pound a mountainous region prone to flash floods and mudslides with rains and heavy winds before weakening to a tropical storm.
 
Franklin strengthened into the first hurricane of the Atlantic season on Wednesday and its landfall as a Category 1 storm early Thursday was its second on Mexican territory in three days.
 
As a tropical storm, Franklin made a relatively mild run across the Yucatan Peninsula earlier in the week.
 
Authorities in Veracruz ordered classes cancelled at public schools as a precautionary measure.
